Why 'Little Women' Matters. Plus: Greta Gerwig! | The Big Picture
It's been 25 years since the last Hollywood adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel about the March sisters. Why did Greta Gerwig want to tackle this piece of classic literature for her 'Lady Bird' follow-up (14:15)? We look at how she refashioned and reimagined certain aspects of the book, how it fits in with previous iterations of the story, and why there's something uniquely urgent about it. Then, Gerwig joins the show to talk about how she conceived the film and executed her vision (1:00:00).
Hosts: Sean Fennessey and Amanda Dobbins
Guests: Greta Gerwig
