“THE WRITTEN WORD CAN BE POWERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL – BUT FILMS TRANSPORT US TO ANOTHER PLACE IN A WAY THAT EVEN THE MOST EVOCATIVE WORDS NEVER CAN.” Saoirse Ronan
The New Year always brings the most anticipated movie releases, and M10 client, Sony Pictures Releasing is no exception. In January 2020 they have a vast selection of films bound to make you laugh, cry, jump and scream, with all genres from comedy to horror, and action to drama. There is really something for everyone, so you’ll want to plug these into your calendar.
New Year’s Day will see Greta Gerwig’s beautiful adaption of the classic, Little Women, which follows the joyful, uplifting, relatable and intertwined lives of the March sisters; Jo (Saoirse Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Amy (Florence Pugh) and Beth (Eliza Scanlen).
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
