Nominated for six Academy Awards*, including Best Picture, Greta Gerwig’s fresh, unique and modern adaptation of the timeless Louisa May Alcott masterpiece LITTLE WOMEN comes to Digital May 11 and Blu-ray™ and DVD May 25 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) 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. Gerwig’s take on the beloved story of the March sisters—four young women each determined to live life on their own terms—is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan(Lady Bird), Emma Watson (Beauty and the Beast), Florence Pugh (Midsommar) and Eliza Scanlen (TV’s “Sharp Objects”), with Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name) as their neighbour Laurie, Chris Cooper (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood) as Mr. Laurence, Laura Dern (Marriage Story and TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Marmee and Meryl Streep (The Post) as Aunt March. LITTLE WOMEN is produced by Amy Pascal, Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord, and is executive produced by Adam Merims, Evelyn O’Neill, Rachel O’Connor and Arnon Milchan.
The Blu-ray™, DVD and digital releases will take viewers even deeper into the beloved story of Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth with over 45 minutes of fascinating bonus features. See how Writer/Director Greta Gerwig led this modern adaptation of a literary classic with a magnificent new cast, incredible art direction, elaborate costumes, set pieces and how she took inspiration from the real-life Orchard House where Louisa May Alcott lived and wrote LITTLE WOMEN.
