“Little Women” plays four days, Feb. 7 – 10, Friday – Monday.
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.

Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
This 135-minute drama is rated PG for thematic elements and brief smoking.
