16 Intriguing Behind-The-Scenes Facts About The New "Little Women" Movie
Meryl Streep wanted to play Aunt March from the very beginning.
Saoirse Ronan (Jo March) and Greta Gerwig (director) both kept a copy of the bound Little Women book that is published at the end of the movie.
The memories from childhood are shot with a specific filter to give it a golden glow, while the adulthood scenes are shot with a colder feel.
Similarly, Saoirse told Greta that she would be Jo and that she'd make a great Jo, and Greta knew she was right for the part.
Greta said it was Timothée's (Laurie) idea to be standing on the chair when he's supposed to be learning Latin in the scene where he spots Amy outside.
Marmee's costume was intentional as well, incorporating the colors from all of her girls.
Stylistically, there are also pieces representing the four Marches in her hair.
Emma Watson saw feminism in the way that Meg makes the choice to be married and make a loving home for herself and her family, because that's what was important to her.
The cast had a few different group texts going throughout the length of filming, and one chat was called "Marmee." They also had to teach Laura Dern how to use WhatsApp.
Saoirse said she punched Timothée "at least twenty times" in the scene where they are all leaving the theater.
