Little Women (DVD)
New BBC TV adaptation of the Louisa M. Alcott classic, by Call the Midwife creator Heidi Thomas. Starring Emily Watson, Angela Lansbury, Michael Gambon and Maya Hawke as Jo March.
Set against the Civil War, the story follows the four March sisters on their journey from childhood to adulthood while their father is away at war.
Under the guidance of their mother Marmee (Emily Watson), the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from gender roles to sibling rivalry, first love, loss and marriage. Accompanied by the charming boy next door Laurie Laurence (Jonah Hauer-King), their cantankerous wealthy Aunt March (Angela Lansbury) and benevolent neighbour Mr. Laurence (Michael Gambon), Little Women is a coming-of-age story that is as relevant and engaging today as it was on its original publication in 1868.
