      Laurie and Amy are shown with their child. In the beginning of Gerwig's film, Jo is an uncertain artist who doesn't yet know her worth, or that of her words. At the party, Jo retreats to an alcove, and there meets Laurie, the boy who lives with Mr. At the party, she is angry at his drunken behavior, and he mocks her for spending time with a wealthy businessman, Fred Vaughn. The girls meet John Brooke, Laurie's tutor.

      Little Women centers on the four March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy — as they make ends meet with their mother, Marmee, while their father is off fighting for the Union in the Civil War. Later that day, Marmee encourages them to give away their breakfast to a poor family, the Hummels. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. Alcott gives Beth a peaceful death on a spring night, and the next morning dawns eerily pleasantly. In the present, Marmee reveals a devastated Amy is returning home with a sick Aunt March. One of the most obvious changes is the addition of a meta-narrative.

      Their mother promises to help them on this journey as she can and to give them all etiquette guidebooks. The girls must contend with learning to become good women and learning about who they are as people with the help of their mother and father. He works as a minister in the town. In Gerwig's adaptation, however, this small detail is discarded in favor of a much more dramatic scene.

Little Women book

Little Women Summary

Laurence invites Beth to play the piano in his house, as she reminds him of his dead daughter. Although Jo does get married while Alcott remained unmarried, their stories are very similar both in content and spirit. There Jo meets Professor Bhaer, a poor German language instructor.

In New York, Mr. All of these changes serve Gerwig's purpose but would have been completely unnecessary for Alcott and her contemporaries. Megsixteen, wants to overcome vanity and complain less about poverty and hard work.

Later, Jo has inherited Aunt March's house and opened it as a school. In addition to being wealthy, Laurie is kind, lively, and good.

Little Women

The March family is relatively poor, though they can still afford one servant and they often share whatever they have with others less fortunate. She is a tomboy and a writer with a fierce temper and a dislike for doing what society thinks is proper.

The blossoming of feminist criticism finally gave Little Women the thoughtful, rigorous analysis it deserved. Instead, they meet and begin their adult courtship, with Laurie seeing Amy differently for the first time, and Amy making the most of the evening. Although Laurie's feelings for Jo were obviously one-sided — "I don't know why I can't love you as you want me to," she tells him.

She loves music and is given a piano by their neighbor Mr. Meg and John are very happy together and have twins, Daisy and Demi.

During his Latin lesson, Laurie notices Amy standing outside crying, having been hit by her teacher for misbehaving in class she drew a caricature of himand invites her in before her family comes to take her home.

Laurence meets all the sisters, and Beth becomes his special favorite. In the present, Marmee reveals a devastated Amy is returning home with a sick Aunt March. In the past, Marmee, the mother of the girls, is informed that their father is ill from the war.
