SYNOPSIS:

Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) 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, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothee Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Spending his days as a rent collector Lowry takes art classes in the evening and paints well into the early hours of the morning yearning for his work to be appreciated in London and beyond. While his disdainful mother is the ultimate obstacle to his success, she is the very reason Lowry paints anything at all, desperate to create something, anything, which will make her happy

REVIEW:

Nerida

Seeing this in a theatre filled with families and kids was an almost magical experience. It is like seeing kids meeting Santa for the first time. Consequently I have no doubt this sequel will make all the billions and be just as, if not more, loved than the first.


This movie does a few things better than the first movie. I think the story is more intense, which is not necessarily better for the kids since it need a bit more thinking and understanding, but as an adult this sequel has a lot more to offer. I also think this is funnier, and oh God it is beautiful to watch. The cinematic experience of seeing this beauty on screen is magical… and yes, magical is the word of the day. Elsa also goes fully magical and has several really cool superpower moments. And did I mention how beautiful this movie is to watch?


I also felt all the emotions. Expect to cry a lot, feel happy a lot, feel joy a lot, laugh a lot – it is a roller coaster ride and the third act is absolutely fantastic.


I think I can only mention one “bad” thing about this movie, and that is that it is not perfect. It drags a little bit from the end of the first act into the second act, the music is not as good as in the first one, and I think a few situations and events could have gone different. But all of those are very minor complaints. This is as good as a animated movie can be, and I walked out of the cinema feeling very happy.


I highly recommend and I give this a 9/10, and I almost gave it a 10/10 which it probably deserve as an animated movie, but as a movie in general and not looking at the genre. as I mention before, the movie is not perfect and perhaps it does not feel as new and fresh as the first one did, which together with the music is why the first one is still more special. This movie is better, but the first is more special, if that makes any sense. Go see!
