Oh my word. I went and saw Little Women last week and I am officially obsessed. My friend and I had planned to go right after Christmas but couldn’t find a time to go together until after the New Year. I patiently waited and even thought I would be okay if I waited until I could download it at home. NOPE. I’m so, so happy we saw it in theaters because it was amazing. So amazing in fact, that I went again by myself two days later and it was even better the second time. (And let me just say that I rarely enjoy seeing the same movie twice in theaters because I get bored. However, it went even faster the second time around and I can totally see myself watching it again.)
I never read Little Women as a kid and attempted to read it before seeing the movie, but couldn’t quite get into it. (I’ve picked it back up though since becoming obsessed with the movie!) And I loved the 1994 movie as a kid but haven’t seen it in over a decade. I was excited about this one because I thought the cast was great– I had no idea that I would become completely enthralled by the story, the costumes, the sets, everything.
Since watching it for the first time, I have gone on a deep dive on the movie. I know a bunch of you guys also fell in love with the movie, so I’m sharing these if you haven’t seen them yet plus I’m all ears if there’s something I’ve missed and need to see/read.
And if you haven’t gone to see it yet, GO. I pre-ordered the movie to own, but I don’t think anything will beat seeing it on the big screen. This has been the best movie I’ve seen in theaters in years– seriously, it’s that good.
I loved every costume, but Amy’s were definitely the most beautiful. THAT CAPE.
“Dressing Little Women” // My favorite article!!! Jacqueline Durran, the costume designer, was interviewed by Vogue and I ate it up. The costumes were probably my favorite part of the whole movie so reading about the deliberate choices and styling made them only that much more magical. I read this after watching it for the first time and I had so many things to think about, look for, and analyze while watching it the second time. So many more details stood out!! Someone also sent me a link to an Etsy shop that sells Little Women inspired clothing…. how weird would it be if I exclusively started dressing like this 🤔
Breaking Down a Scene from Little Women// Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, and Greta Gerwig discuss different scenes from the film. I really enjoyed it. The thought that went into the directing and acting… like, wow.
Behind the Scenes with Little Women // I sent this to Maddie and she had the same reaction that I had. Not only did it paint the film in such a beautiful light, it also made both of us want to be IN THE CAST. It looks like they all had so much fun filming on location, even if it was freezing out.
Speaking of having FOMO. More fun things from Youtube & Instagram featuring the actors.
Emma Watson shared some lovely black and white photos from filming. And Timothée Chalamet shared some amazing behind the scenes photos of the cast while shooting… the juxtaposition between the costumes and modern items (like Wendy’s french fries!) was so good. And here are Saoirse, Florence, and Eliza quizzing each other with trivia about the book and movie.
And my very favorite? Some of the cast watching a Little Women-inspired Tiny Kitchen video. The commentary!!!
Who’s seen it? Who still needs to go? Are there any interviews, behind the scenes videos, or Instagrams I need to watch/see/read?!?!?!
