A star-studded cast, an amazing story and a visionary director are the main ingredients of an amazing movie – and Little Women has them all!

That’s why it’s one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and Greta Gerwig finally gave us a sneak peek into her latest project.

The Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director recently set down with Vanity Fair to discuss her adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel and used the opportunity to share the first look at this period drama.

She unveiled a couple of pictures, showing the leading ladies Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Saoirse Ronan and Eliza Scanlen in character as the March sisters.

This timeless coming-of-age tale was always very close to Gerwig’s heart, and bringing it to the big screen was a deeply personal experience. Despite the fact the story is set in the post-Civil War era, Little Women always felt fairly modern because it follows several female characters, who have a very strong sense of self and are marching to the beat of their own drum.

“They were just people. They were not in a period piece, they were just living. They were the most modern people who had ever existed, up till that point,” explained Gerwig.
