Greta Gerwig, known for her award-winning movie Lady Bird, takes the helm of the classic story's eighth cinema rendition. 

While the Little Women has been told both on stage and TV, this is the first big-screen version since Gillian Armstrong's 1994 movie - which won three Academy Awards and starred the likes of Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, Samantha Mathis, Susan Sarandon and Christen Bale as Laurie.

Little Women is set to hit New Zealand cinemas from January 2, 2020.
