Little Women Trailer #1 (2019) | Movieclips Trailers

The synopses reads: "Gerwig 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". Ahead of a December release, the first trailer has now arrived. The film is the eighth adaption of Louise May Alcott's late-19th century novel following the March girls, Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth in the aftermath of the Civil War.

What's striking about this trailer is how modern the movie looks. It's certainly embracing its period setting, but the character's behavior and attitudes feel like they're drawn from the present day.

As old-fashioned a tale as Little Women is, there's something wonderfully timeless about the four strong-willed sisters who only have each other at the height of wartorn America. The two co-starred in her 2017 hit "Lady Bird", which was nominated for "Best Picture" and "Best Original Screenplay", "Best Actress" (Ronan) and "Best Supporting Actress" and "Best Director" (Gerwig) at the Academy Awards that year.
