LITTLE WOMEN - Official Trailer (HD).
In 1868, Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) is a teacher in New York City. She goes to an editor, Mr. Dashwood (Tracy Letts), who agrees to publish a story she has written. Her sister Amy (Florence Pugh), in Paris with their Aunt March (Meryl Streep), sees their childhood friend Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) and invites him to a party. There, she becomes angry at his drunken behavior, and he mocks her for spending time with wealthy businessman Fred Vaughn (Dash Barber). In New York, Jo is hurt when Friedrich Bhaer (Louis Garrel), a professor infatuated with her, constructively criticizes her writing, and she ends their friendship. After receiving a letter that her younger sister Beth's illness has worsened, Jo returns home.
Seven years earlier, Jo and her three sisters live in Concord, Massachusetts. At a party with her older sister Meg (Emma Watson), Jo befriends Laurie, the grandson of their neighbor, Mr. Laurence (Chris Cooper). On Christmas morning, the girls' mother, "Marmee", persuades her daughters to give their breakfast to their poor neighbor, Mrs. Hummel (Sasha Frolova), and her starving children. Returning home, the girls find their table full of food from Mr. Laurence, and a letter from their father fighting in the American Civil War. Jo visits their Aunt March, who invites her to Europe. 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 to the theatre, a jealous Amy burns Jo's writings, deeply upsetting Jo. The next morning Amy, wanting to make up with Jo, chases her onto a lake where Jo and Laurie are skating. They save Amy when she falls through the ice. Mr. Laurence invites Beth (Eliza Scanlen) to play the piano in his house, as she reminds him of his late daughter. In the present, Laurie visits Amy to apologize for his behavior. He urges her not to marry Fred, but to marry him instead. Though in love with Laurie, Amy refuses, upset at always being "second to Jo". She later turns down Fred's proposal, only to learn Laurie has left for London.
