LITTLE WOMEN - Official Trailer (HD).
In 1868, Jo (Saoirse Ronan) is a teacher in New York City. She goes to an editor, Mr. Dashwood (Tracy Letts), and gets a story published subject to considerable editing. Her sister Amy, in Paris with their Aunt March (Meryl Streep), sees childhood friend Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) and invites him to a party. At the party, she is angry at his drunken behavior, and he mocks her for spending time with a wealthy businessman, Fred Vaughn (Dash Barber). In New York, Jo meets with Friedrich Bhaer (Louis Garrel), a professor infatuated with her, and he constructively criticizes her work. Jo takes it personally and breaks their friendship off. Afterward, Jo gets a letter saying that her younger sister Beth (Eliza Scanlen) has gotten sicker, so she returns home.
In 1861 in Concord, Massachusetts, Jo and her older sister Meg (Emma Watson) go to a party where Jo meets Laurie, the grandson of their neighbor, Mr. Laurence (Chris Cooper).
On Christmas morning, their mother, "Marmee", persuades the girls to give their breakfast to their poor neighbor, Mrs. Hummel (Sasha Frolova), and her group of starving young children. Upon returning home, the girls see their table full of food, provided by Mr. Laurence, and a letter from their father fighting in the American Civil War.
Jo visits their Aunt March, who invites Jo to Europe with her. During his Latin lesson, Laurie notices Amy standing outside, having been hit by her teacher for misbehaving in class, and invites her in before her family comes to take her home.
When Meg, Jo, Laurie, and John, Laurie's tutor, and Meg's eventual husband, go out one night to the theatre, an angry and jealous Amy burns Jo's writings, upsetting Jo. Amy attempts to apologize but to no avail. The next morning Amy, wanting to make up with Jo, chases her onto a lake where Jo and Laurie are skating. The two skate over to save Amy when the ice breaks underneath her. That night, Jo expresses guilt over what happened to Amy. Mr. Laurence invites Beth to play the piano in his house, as she reminds him of his dead daughter.
