Positive first reactions to "Little Women"

There was a screening of the final cut of Greta Gerwig's Little Women in Los Angeles last night. Social media "impressions" were allowed as of midnight today, and the responses on Twitter have been overwhelmingly positive. Just a few:

General consensus seems to be that Gerwig's direction is masterful, Saoirse Ronan as Jo is wonderful, and Florence Pugh as Amy is a major scene-stealer. Oscar buzz for all, including best picture, adapted screenplay and production design.  Word is Meryl's role is small, but provides some comedic relief.

Little Women will be released in theaters on Christmas Day.  


  1. Two years in a row of Streep not on the Oscar race is a nice break for her. Let her come back next year for PROM. People don't think it's Oscar material, but I think it will be. It is timely and she will be diva-licious!

    1. She might end up hitting all the major awards for her TV work this year.
