Commence immediate hyperventilating. Now. Vanity Fair has released a number of official first look images straight from Greta Gerwig’s highly-anticipated adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women – and we have been shaken to our core.
First things first, we’ve had to come to terms with certain earth-shattering realisations: we’re thirsty for Timothée Chalamet in a billowing white chemise and velvet waistcoat (OK, we probably already knew this), woven baskets are going to enjoy an exponential explosion in sales, and Meryl Streep in any sort of veil is our forever mood.
Helmed by the Oscar-nominated director of 2017 indie flick Ladybird, Gerwig also brought along her favourite cast members Chalamet, who plays Laurie, the rich boy next door, and Saoirse Ronan, who stars as Jo March. Also in the glittering cast – which basically reads as a who’s-who of indie A24-birthed actors – Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy, and Eliza Scanlen as Beth. As well as the March sisters, we have the inimitable Streep as their wealthy Aunt March, and Laura Dern as Marmee.
Heavenly. Enjoy the rest of the images below…
Little Women will launch in cinemas on 17 January 2020.
