Little Women is a film released and produced in 2019, directed and written by Greta Gerwig. It is based on Louisa May Alcott's best-selling series.

Starring in the film are Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, and Meryl Streep.


Little Women explores the lives of the March sisters in 1860s New England, in the aftermath of the American Civil War. According to one of its producers, the new adaptation focuses more on the sisters' young adult lives, particularly after Meg, Jo, and Amy leave their family home. The film jumps back and forth in time and focuses more on themes than narrative.



Little Women had its world premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on December 7, 2019, and theatrically released in the United States on December 25, 2019, by Sony Pictures Releasing.
