In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director Greta Gerwig described how Meryl inspired a specific scene in Little Women. That scene was released yesterday:
Granted, the scene doesn't even include Meryl, only the great Florence Pugh (Amy March) and Timothée Chalamet (Laurie). But it's a poignant scene and lesson for what it was like for women in the nineteenth century.
Incidentally, following multiple screenings, Pugh is garnering quite a bit of buzz these days for awards recognition. Kind of fun that her likely Oscar clip was essentially written by Meryl.
Little Women opens Christmas Day.
