Fresh, sparkling, natural and full of soul.

[T]his is a film in love with its characters' passions, a rich and effortlessly vibrant examination of the four March "little women" and the ways... they're practically bursting with the innocent it's-happening-right-now joy of being young and alive.

In an era in which sentimentality is a seasoning that filmmakers either shun entirely or employ with too heavy a hand, Gerwig crafts a work that is moving without being manipulative. This is a Little Women for the ages.

It doesn't just brim with life, it brims with ideas about happiness, economic realities, and what it means to push against or to hew to the expectations laid out for one's gender.

If this isn't the Little Women you remember, either on page or screen, that's understandable. But it's likely the one you felt, and that's more important.

It's a warm fireplace hearth of a film, albeit one with a tendency to spit out fiery embers.

A tremendously resonant, sometimes heartbreaking and always entertaining hoot.

The film works because Gerwig manages to re-emphasise some new aspect of the profound connection between these characters in every new scene.

Gerwig has taken a treasured perennial of popular American literature and reshaped it for a new generation, which should give the captivating film a long shelf life.

Gerwig and her girls know the hearts and minds of the sisters through and through. "Little Women" is about them above all else.
November 25, 2019
As one might hope, Gerwig's interpretation does right by the material, sticking to the original period and setting and assembling a dream cast to play the March siblings.

There's nothing little about Greta Gerwig's rich, warm, bustlingly populated and passionately devoted new tribute to Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of sisterhood.
November 25, 2019
The film tweaks the structure of a well-known and beloved story and modernizes it with light meta touches, all while staying true to its old-fashioned belief in the virtues of kindness and selflessness.

If Gerwig's woke Women-hood verges on anachronism, though, it also feels fully loyal to the spirit of Alcott, a woman always well ahead of her time.
