Οι «Μικρές Κυρίες» της Γκρέτα Γκέργουιγκ είχαν δημιουργήσει αρκετό buzz από την πρώτη στιγμή που ανακοινώθηκαν.
Η ταινία αναμένεται στις αίθουσες τα Χριστούγεννα, αλλά κάποιοι τυχεροί ήδη την είδαν και αμέσων έτρεξαν στα social media για να γράψουν την γνώμη τους.

Οι πρώτες αντιδράσεις του κοινού για την ταινία είναι απλά διθυραμβικές με αρκετούς να μιλάνε για οσκαρικές ερμηνείες των Σίρσα Ρόναν και της Φλόρενς Που (την οποία απολαύσαμε και πρόσφατα στο «Μεσοκαλόκαιρο» του Αρι Αστερ). Απ' ότι φαίνεται η Γκέργουιγκ αποφάσισε να κόψει την γραμμική αφήγηση της Αλκοτ προσθέτοντας και κάποια φλάσμπακς των μικρών και μεγάλων αδερφών Μαρς, δίνοντας έτσι μια πιο φρέσκια προσέγγιση στο αρχικό υλικό.

The reaction to LITTLE WOMEN at an overflow screening at the Directors Guild is just crazy, wonderfully insane. Greta Gerwig is a goddamn rock star.— Glenn Whipp (@GlennWhipp) October 24, 2019
#LittleWomen: Gerwig makes this material her own in delightful ways you’d expect and some adult-meditation-on-childhood ways I didn’t. So rewarding to see the ease with which she paints on this canvas and that she (or any director these days) was given it.— Chris O'Falt (@cofalt) October 24, 2019
Jo's lines in #LittleWomen resonate w me completely differently now as a 33 yr old single writer. Wanting to remain independent but wanting to be loved. Greta's take on the story made me connect w Jo in a way I never had. As a girl, I just thought she was crazy to reject Laurie.— Amy Kaufman (@AmyKinLA) October 24, 2019
Greta Gerwig takes the straightforward story of LITTLE WOMEN and boldly scrambles it, starting two-thirds of the way through and retelling most of what you remember via flashbacks and cross-cutting. Call it Louisa May Alcott meets 21 GRAMS.— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 24, 2019
For my money, the MVP in LITTLE WOMEN is Florence Pugh. Hot off of MIDSOMMAR, Pugh is having a great year, and she’s hilarious and winning as Amy, the character best served by Gerwig’s structural gambits.— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 24, 2019
So I've seen Little Women twice now and it's one of my very favorite movies of the year. Greta Gerwig delivers a both passionately faithful and gorgeously original take. Saoirse is a fierce Jo, Chalamet/Dern/Streep esp are great in support, and Florence Pugh is astonishing.— David Canfield (@davidcanfield97) October 24, 2019
Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" is an intelligent, honorable piece of filmmaking that pays great respect to a beloved literary tale.— Clayton Davis (@AwardsCircuit) October 24, 2019
Florence Pugh is outstanding, and doesn't just steal, but snatch every viewer's eyes in each scene she inhabits. #LittleWomenMovie #FilmTwitter pic.twitter.com/YAUw9iLDZ4
Greta Gerwig's @LittleWomen is wonderful. A loving, meticulously-crafted adaptation that exceeded my expectations. Heartfelt, moving and a terrific showcase for its extremely talented cast and beloved source material. pic.twitter.com/NwcMmnx9Pg— Kara Warner (@karawarner) October 24, 2019
Saoirse Ronan is going to land her fourth Academy Award nomination for #LittleWomen at the age of 25. In related news, I needed a two-hour nap today after stubbing my toe.— Jenelle Riley (@jenelleriley) October 24, 2019
Based on additional discussions with screening attendees, #LittleWomen sounds like a strong #Oscars Best Adapted Screenplay contender, many telling me Gerwig was faithful to source material but added her own unique twist on things, also Pugh & @RealChalamet praised for supporting pic.twitter.com/Qt9n8j1Dvu— 𝔼𝕎 AWARDS ACE (@ErickWeber) October 23, 2019
LITTLE WOMEN is charming just like the novel/prior versions. Each role perfectly cast. Rousing score. Timely as ever. Hard not to cheer. Greta says at q&a, “As a girl who wanted to be a writer, Jo March was my north star.” We’ll see as far as Oscars—nice to have an upbeat option. pic.twitter.com/WUDmtJwjd8— Scott Feinberg (@ScottFeinberg) October 24, 2019
The last three Best Picture winners—MOONLIGHT, THE SHAPE OF WATER, GREEN BOOK—end happily and portrayed the world as ultimately hopeful.— Sean Fennessey (@SeanFennessey) October 24, 2019
Greta Gerwig’s LITTLE WOMEN is the first movie of the year that does just that. So...front runner? (It’s inventive and wonderful.)
Saoirse Ronan makes all this look easy, once again proves, she is one of our most gifted actresses working.— Clayton Davis (@AwardsCircuit) October 24, 2019
Alexandre Desplat's musical score is undoubtedly not just one of the best compositions of the year, but one of the crowning achievements of his career. #LittleWomenMovie
