'Little Women' still relevant says Greta Gerwig

"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott tells a story of four sisters, where each has a different character and looks for her own life path.

Sisters are played by Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen in Greta's remake.

"Well, I think what has been really enlightening for me about doing Greta's adoption of Little Women is that it's made me go back to the source material and realise that like so much of Little Women and so much of Louisa May Alcott story is about art and money and a woman's sort of relationship to both and how you balance that," said Ronan.

Greta said she had no other choice, but to pay a tribute to the book whose main heroine Jo March performed by Saoirse Ronan inspired her to become a writer and later on a director.

"And then when I read it as an adult, I found it was so modern and urgent and pressing and really the core of it, it's about women, ambition, money and art and I felt like that was a very 2020/2019 tale to tell," Greta said.

The movie will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25.
