A cast of hell

Not so easy to go after two films that have already marked the history of cinemas. In full Hollywood Golden Age , Georges Cukor hits the mark with Katharine Hepburn in the lead role and inspires a generation of feminists starting with… Simone de Beauvoir . Then it's Gillian Armstrong's turn to seize the masterpiece with Winona Ryder , priceless in Jo March's boots…

It took a shock cast to ensure this new film version. Greta Gerwig went there strong by summoning Emma Watson , the witch of Harry Potter , to play the splendid Meg, Timothée Chalamet (Mister Lily Rose Depp in the city) to play Laurie, without forgetting the priceless Meryl Streep as Aunt March. Another fact to note: the accomplice presence of Louis Garrel in history. We will not spoil his role!

Now faced with a modest lifestyle and left to their own devices after a reversal of fortune from their pastor father gone to war, the girls seize their destiny, under the benevolent eye of their servant and friend: Hannah.

The portrait of the four young women stands in all the guise of femininity who embody emancipation and impertinence… Starting with the lovely and romantic Meg, the exact opposite of her younger daughter, Jo, the tomboy of the family, writer de la smala and best friend of their neighbor, the wealthy Laurie.
