Film festivals have their quirky picks and every year, there are one or two films that often make their premiere at the Venice Film Festival early in the season, but fail to turn up later at Tiff, Telluride or Nyff. Last year, one of those pictures was Jennifer Kent’s sprawling colonialism and harrowing revenge film, “The Nightingale,” not an easy sell by any stretch given the material and length (2.5+ hours).

Little Women Trailer: Greta Gerwig's All-Star Take on a Literary Classic

Sony Pictures has finally released the first trailer for Little Women. This serves as Greta Gerwig's directorial follow-up to 2017's Lady Bird, which almost instantly puts this in the Oscar conversation on that point alone. Yet, we also have a new take on some truly treasured source material, in addition to a truly impressive ensemble cast.

The trailer kicks off by painting a picture of the special bond shared between the sisters at the heart of the story. We also get a strong sense for Jo, played by Saoirse Ronan, who is a progressive woman in her time, doing her best to make her own way in the world, despite being told that's not the way things work. Dramatic tension is built as relationships begin to form. The key takeaways here are how stunning and lush the movie looks, as it's clear Sony was willing to spend some money

Beautiful Trailer for Little Women Makes the Story New Again

I am a lifelong fan of Louisa May Alcott’s classic autobiographical novel, Little Women. I watched the Katharine Hepburn version as a kid, and loved the 1994 Winona Ryder version, and now we are being treated to a new iteration with a wonderful cast and a director who loves the story as much as any of us big fans.

We reported previously that Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has a deep love for the project, as she previously stated, “This feels like autobiography. When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life.… It becomes part of you, in a profound way.” I love that and so appreciate that when seeing a film made that follows a story so close to my own heart.
