"Nothing less than the best" has always been the approach for the film adaptation of the classic, mainly because Louise Mae Olcott's book is passionately loved: the 1933 film stars Catherine Hepburn and Winona Ryder in 1994 with an Oscar nomination for the role.


It is inevitable to wonder why we have another version, but the question has come to the director and screenwriter Greta Guruig (for whom we talk about here). Her ambition is to prove her point in every aspect: in the choice of interesting young and popular mature actresses, in the decision to tell a story with a torn chronology to refresh it and in creating a world where all horses are combed, every deaf instrument will sing to bring joy, and even the poor are being cold beautifully. The plot is probably familiar to you: sometime during the Civil War in the United States, we meet the four March sisters who, as children, build warm friendships with each other and explore their talents, and as young women will try to live by their own rules. We follow all of them, along with the beautiful, bushy young people in the neighborhood (the most important of whom is Timothy Chalamet), but the story revolves mostly around the fun-loving rebel Joe (Sdoirse Ronan), who according to their grim aunt (Meryl Streep) is a "lost cause "with her eternal ink stains on his hands and ambition to become a writer in a male world. Who will overcome in pulling the rope in this game of freedom? Greta Guruig's answer is woven into the film's finale if you seek her opinion of the big winner in history.
