The hype for this film was real — Greta Gerwig, indie film darling, directing and writing her second solo project (the first being Oscar-nominated Lady Bird), with Soairse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet back as leads, no less. As if that weren't enough, it was for the adaptation of this classic novel that already found a perfect film adaptation in the '90s.
Fans needn't have been worried, though. Here, each sister's life, which represents so faithfully so many of our own (I'm sorry, but not everyone can be a Jo), is given so much love and respect. It's also told in a nonlinear timeline, so even though set in the 19th Century, is thoroughly modern in its storytelling — even my period film-hating husband loved it. Watch this one next time you're spending the night in with the women in your life.
