Little Women (2019)

I had never read the book, or seen the earlier versions of this book, but I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this movie.
I enjoyed seeing small town New England life during the Civil War and how the March family lived while father was away at the war.
I don't think I would have liked it as much if the cast wasn't so good. Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson and Timothy Chalamet are really good young actors. Meryl Streep. Laura Dern and Chris Cooper are some of our best older actors.
It was interesting how director Greta Gerberg (Lady Bird) had Jo take on the role of Louisa May Alcott in the film.
Overall, really good.
