Perfect for long-time lovers of the March sisters, and especially for a new generation of fans, the film directed by Greta Gerwig will have movie lovers and fans of Louisa May Alcott falling in love with the timeless story of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy as they navigate hardship and adventure in post–Civil War Concord, Massachusetts.
The New York Times said of Gerwig’s sparkling movie adaptation, “The new movie version of Louisa May Alcott’s novel comes as an absolute gift. A whole stocking full, really. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, this ‘Little Women’—the latest of many adaptations—embraces its source material with eager enthusiasm rather than timid reverence. It is faithful enough to satisfy the book’s passionate devotees, who will recognize the work of a kindred spirit, while standing on its own as an independent and inventive piece of contemporary popular culture.”

Whether you’ve loved Little Women for decades, or are discovering it all because of the star power of Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, and Emma Watson, this edition will be a treasure you will read and hold dear. The original text and the new photographs from the movie bring to life the March sisters like never before.
