Greta Gerwig’s Little Women adaptation has promised the all-too-rare mix of white-hot filmmaker operating at a rare creative peak with note-perfect source material, and now the first reactions sure look like the movie lives up to its insane promise. Fresh off her almost universally beloved Lady Bird, Gerwig is back with another surefire Oscar contender.
Numerous early reactions cite Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh as particularly noteworthy. Long story short, sounds like fans of both the book and of good movies have a lot to be excited about.
Here are a few (spoiler-free, in case you somehow dodged this classic up till now) reactions from the first screenings.
Here’s the trailer one more time, for those who didn’t catch it on the first go-around.
The movie releases in December.
