Set in 1860s New England, the narrative attempts to throw light on the struggles of the four March daughters as they face the trial and tribulations of life. Little Women also stars Timothee Chalamet, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep in significant parts.
Louisa May Alcott's classic Little Women is getting adapted for the big screen and it is being helmed by Oscar-nominated Greta Gerwig. Emma Watson is going to play a pivotal role in the period drama, according to a report by Variety.
Greta Gerwig is up for best director, only the fifth woman nominated in Oscar history. Yet in nearly every Oscar category, nominees are overwhelmingly male. Three of the 24 awards have no female nominees at all.
Lady Bird is one of the best-reviewed movies of all time, with a 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It is a poignant story of a strong-willed girl and her relationship with her equally strong-willed mother.
