Little Women (2019) | Ratings & Reviews

"A lovely rendition as well as an emotional roller coaster, this timeless story of love, family and strong-willed women is truly a film for today’s audiences of all ages and sexes."

New Zealand ListenerNew Zealand Listener

"...often seems altered, confused and simplified from original intention. Despite its imperfections and faults, this bright, sisterhood saga is full of joy, which audiences will no doubt embrace."


"It's a masterful, passionate, all-in kind of adaptation. As the sports commentators say, Gerwig should podium in coming contests."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"It's no mean feat to take original source material like this, a story first published in the late 1800s, and deliver to the here and now. Gerwig and her fabulous cast do this with the script, their robust authentic performances and their commitment to a bracingly chaotic realism, showing us how women really communicate; with vigour, passion and much hilarity."


"An engrossing movie filled with memorable incident, colourful characters and heartwarming and wrenching drama, Little Women is a reminder of the transportative and allegorical powers of cinema. Make a date to see this with the significant women in your life."


"It's often a lovely experience, to sit with Gerwig's ardor, to feel the warming beam of her cast radiating off the screen. I left the theater with eyes brimming. I only wish that the film's spell was cast a bit less briskly..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"If there were any remaining doubts that Greta Gerwig is a major talent in American cinema, put them to rest now."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"There's nothing little about Greta Gerwig's rich, warm, bustlingly populated and passionately devoted new tribute to Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of sisterhood."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"As one might hope, Gerwig's interpretation does right by the material, sticking to the original period and setting and assembling a dream cast to play the March siblings."


"Gerwig has taken a treasured perennial of popular American literature and reshaped it for a new generation, which should give the captivating film a long shelf life."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The film works because Gerwig manages to re-emphasise some new aspect of the profound connection between these characters in every new scene."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"If this isn't the Little Women you remember, either on page or screen, that's understandable. But it's likely the one you felt, and that's more important."

Time OutTime Out

"It doesn't just brim with life, it brims with ideas about happiness, economic realities, and what it means to push against or to hew to the expectations laid out for one's gender."


"[T]his is a film in love with its characters' passions, a rich and effortlessly vibrant examination of the four March "little women" and the ways... they're practically bursting with the innocent it's-happening-right-now joy of being young and alive."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"If you can keep a handhold on the plot, Little Women is a heartfelt, uplifting movie you can happily lose yourself in, offering a respite from our own hard times."
