About the director:
Greta Gerwig has formerly demonstrated her love and flair for sophisticated movie making because she secured five Oscar nominations for Lady Bird three years ago. But the filmmaker has shown her skills at achieving commercial success too with ‘Little Women’. She proved her self on this refined and sophisticated spin on this nineteenth-century tale. The story revolves around Jo March and her sisters who work hard to make a better life for themselves outside their cold, clammy Massachusetts home.
