Greta Gerwig may have really come into the film industry as an actress, but a couple of years ago her second directorial effort, Lady Bird, really put her on the map as a talent to keep an eye out for. Now, she’s moved on to one of the seminal works of literature, Little Women, as her next big project.

Joining this new film is previous collaborator Saoirse Ronan along with Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep. Needless to say, Gerwig isn’t hurting for talent to work with here.

Check out the trailer down below!

Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.  In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms —  is both timeless and timely.

I’ll admit, I haven’t touched the original novel ever, so I can’t speak to the source material, but this movie looks like it will speak very much to the current age of feminism. In this film, it looks like to bring the tried-and-true conflict of a woman’s intellect and ambition constantly being at odds with the world around her.
