It’s been 25 years since the last Hollywood adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel about the March sisters. Why did Greta Gerwig want to tackle this piece of classic literature for her Lady Bird follow-up (14:15)? We look at how she refashioned and reimagined certain aspects of the book, how it fits in with previous iterations of the story, and why there’s something uniquely urgent about it.
