Starring - *deep breath* - Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, Eliza Scanlen, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep, Little Women has officially been upgraded from auteurial curiosity to one of the film's I'm most looking forward to come award season.

"I'm working on a novel", Jo says.

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is one of those classic stories that filmmakers just can't stop adapting for screens both big and small. Her editor responds: "Make it short and spicy. And if the main character is a girl, make sure she is married by the end".

"Little Women" was big news around MA this past fall, with actors in period-appropriate attire popping up around the Back Bay area and Boston Common as well as prominent Boston spots like the Fairmont Copley Plaza and Arnold Arboretum. Dern will play their mother, Marnee March, and Streep is the rich and old-fashioned Aunt March. Chalamet will star opposite Ronan (again) as her neighbor and love interest, Laurie.

The trailer opens on Saoirse Ronan's Jo March, who is seen running in two different outfits, and two different settings. "And they've got ambition, and they've got talent, as well as just beauty. And I'm so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for".

Jo has previously been played by Katharine Hepburn in 1933, and Winona Ryder in 1994.

Meanwhile, fans on Twitter are reacting to Watson's American accent in the film.
