‘Little Women’: Everything You Need to Know About Greta Gerwig’s New Oscar Hopeful

From major "Lady Bird" reunions to some Oscar-winning crew members, here are the 13 reasons to get excited bout Gerwig's new movie.

“Little Women”


Over two years after the success of “Lady Bird,” writer-director Greta Gerwig is finally set to return to the big screen in 2019 with her star-studded “Little Women” adaptation. Expectations are high for the comedy-drama, not only because of the heavyweight cast but also because “Lady Bird” turned Gerwig into one of the most beloved voices in movies. Gerwig’s 2017 feature directorial debut was a box office hit with $78 million worldwide, an Oscars darling with five nominations, and a critical smash (IndieWire recently named “Lady Bird” one of the top movies of the decade). Naturally, Gerwig has taken on the challenging task of adapting one of the most beloved coming-of-age stories ever written for her “Lady Bird” follow-up.

With Gerwig’s “Little Women” set for release this Christmas, IndieWire has gathered up the 13 must-know details about the Sony Pictures release. From major “Lady Bird” cast reunions to some Oscar-winning crew members, below is everything you need to know about “Little Women” before it opens.
