TRAILER: Key Line From Little Women Trailer Is Not From Little Women at All

FROM STATE: In the new trailerfor Greta Gerwig’s Little Women adaptation, forward-thinking, feminist Jo March (played by Saoirse Ronan) makes an impassioned plea for women’s equality: “Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts. And they’ve got ambition, and they’ve got talent, as well as beauty, and I’m so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for. I’m so sick of it!”

It’s a quote taken almost word for word from one of Louisa May Alcott’s books. The catch? That book is not Little Women.

Gerwig plucked that line from one of Alcott’s other, later novels,Rose in Bloom, the sequel toEight Cousins.


The first trailer for the star-studded adaptation of the classic novelLittle Womenis here. 

The film, starring Saoirse RonanMeryl StreepEmma Watson and Timothée Chalamet, opens December 25th.
