“Little Women” Stars Take to the Red Carpet

There’s not long to wait until the highly anticipated Little Women adaptation hits the big screen on December 25 in the United States.

Emma Watson joined her fellow castmates on the red carpet on December 8 for the movie’s premiere, which took place at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

Watson plays the character of Meg March, the eldest of the four March sisters. Set in Civil War-era Massachusetts, the movie follows Meg, Beth (Eliza Scanlen), Jo (Saoirse Ronan), and Amy (Florence Pugh) as they grow up and navigate family life, financial troubles, and the expectations placed on them.

Often joining the March sisters on their adventures is neighbor and friend Theodore Laurence (played by Timothée Chalamet), and their mother, Mrs. March (played by Laura Dern).

But Little Women wasn’t the only topic of conversation on the red carpet. According to E!, Watson also commented on the response to her “self-partnered” statement:

I literally said it as a throwaway comment thinking it would go no further. And then I woke up the next morning and my phone’s blowing up and I don’t know why, and it’s all my friends messaging me being like, ‘self-partnered?’ This thing’s gone crazy.

Despite the increase in notifications and press attention, Watson stated, “I’m so happy people feel empowered,” by her comments.

Little Women is already receiving great reviews from critics, with the Daily Mail calling it “one of the most brilliantly staged adaptations of any literary work.” Check out the trailer for Little Women below.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
