Based on additional discussions with screening attendees, #LittleWomen sounds like a strong #Oscars Best Adapted Screenplay contender, many telling me Gerwig was faithful to source material but added her own unique twist on things, also Pugh & @RealChalamet praised for supporting pic.twitter.com/Qt9n8j1Dvu— 𝔼𝕎 AWARDS ACE (@ErickWeber) October 23, 2019
#LittleWomen is just a.... lovely tone poem of emotion and heart and why didn’t I bring tissues? pic.twitter.com/z328GTlKWl— Alex Warheit (@RegardingAlex) October 23, 2019
Went to a screening of #LittleWomen...— Tepper (@KristenTepper) October 23, 2019
#1 - it was phenomenally heartwarming and somehow nostalgic and heartbreaking all at the same time.
#2 - Greta Gerwig went to sit in her chair and fell over. And she is everything pure in this world.
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.
