Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is a wise, witty, tender adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel.
Never did I believe I’d write this, but not only does Gerwig surpass what I first believed was my favorite adaptation of the book (every 90s child’s treasured 1994 version with Winona Ryder) but she knocks it upside its head. She leaves you spellbound. She leaves you emotionally wrecked in the best possible way. And she does her audience one better than any of the other versions…one better indeed.
