This is a group of readers. I think we all know this. And, as much as we love our gents around here (I’m looking at you FRQ and Hotspur, you fine gentlemen!) this blog has quite a few ladies that enjoy their lady books. So what’s the most lady-ish book out there? Why Little Women, of course! Now you’ve probably seen a movie version of the book sometime in your life:
This version with Katherine Hepburn (my fave):
Or even this version, with Winona Ryder (which is perfectly fine):
Well, hold on to your stained glove while you wear the good one, because I have some news! Hollywood knows what you want, ladies, and that’s a gritty Little Women reboot!
Deadline describes it as: “Written by [Alexis] Jolly, Little Women is described as a hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation of the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott, in which disparate half-sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined – all while trying not to kill each other in the process.” Just like Louisa May Alcott envisioned!
So…who’s your dream cast for this totally new and totally amazing and totally necessary movie?
