Synopsis: The story of four women who chase dreams

Little Women, is a film by director Greta Gerwig. The film, which is under the auspices of the Sony Pictures Entertainment production studio, is an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 novel.

In general, Little Women tells the story of four sisters in one family. They are Jo (Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Amy (Florence Pugh) and Beth March (Eliza Scanlen) with Marmee (Laura Dern) as their mother. There are also other figures such as Aunt March (Meryl Streep) and their neighbor Laurie (Timothee Chalamet).

The time setting for Little Women is in the 19th century or after the civil war in America. In the trailer, we can see the lives of four sisters in socializing with the environment, pursuing dreams and relationships with the opposite sex.

A Sweet Story That Makes the Audience Immerse in It

The first thing that was highlighted was the director’s courage in adopting a classic 1869 novel to be enjoyed at this time. Of course many think that it will be less relevant to the present.

Technically, maybe yes, but in the story, the audience seems to see that these things are also a picture of life today, starting from the social life about love, career and family. All of that feels very close to life in the present. For example, when Jo, the main character, who gets a lot of portions, finally finds what is best for him.

The second point that can be highlighted is that the characters don’t seem to run out of things to tell. All of the characters feel really have a role in this film. And all of them seem to have the same portion so that we can know the background of the four brothers.

In terms of setting, of course you seem to have been transported to that time in the 19th century which feels thick with the culture. Greta is also very clever in bringing the atmosphere in this film, happy, emotional, disappointed, everything is well portrayed so that the audience is immersed in it.

Flow Shift is quite confusing

Maybe a little flaw that can be seen in this film is, whether everyone feels it or not, the timeline is quite confusing. This film is well-groomed but in terms of the movement it feels too fast and sometimes if maybe you don’t focus while watching it, you will be mistaken that the scene tells the past or the present.

Only one scene at the beginning when you are told that it is in the past, to be precise in the past 7 years when Jo was with his family at that time. After that, you won’t seem to notice that the film is moving and everything is told without a clear enough explanation. For example, Jo’s past or other characters because it is so fast and seems like it is no different from the present.

Overall, this film is very worthy for you to watch and enjoy with your family because all, cheerful, emotional, mixed tears as a whole are told in this film.
