The novel turned movie, “Little Women,” has recently hit the box offices and is now ready to stream over several different platforms.
The story follows the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, through their journey from adolescence to adulthood as a lower-class family in 1800s America.
The sisters, with vastly diverse personalities, are met with several hardships along their journey to success and love. Jo, the main character who mimics the author of the book, narrates the story of how her sisters triumphantly lived their lives.
The movie, directed by Greta Gerwig, follows the book rather well, but also adds a perspective on the writing process of the book that the movie is based on. It covers themes of family, war, social class, illness, feminism and love, all while keeping the story very relatable to any audience.
The character’s diversity in all these aspects makes it for an amazing plot, while having some of the women more work than family driven.
The movie also has a very interesting love triangle, which is where Chalamet naturally comes in. This further brings out the overall theme of sisterhood through the production.
Overall, the movie leaves the audience feeling very motivated to not only triumph through hard times, but also stay true to themselves despite how others closest to them differ morally.
With the acting being goosebumps worthy, and the plot being overall relatable, it is a must watch.
