Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a ‘Little Women’ that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms – is both timeless and timely.
Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
Tickets £5.50 to include tea/coffee and cake. Bring your own wine/beer. Raffle. Advance booking ONLY please, by phone on 01531 822315 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See our website www.pauntley.org.uk.
