Premium HD English movie channel from Times Network MN+, and English entertainment channel Romedy Now will simulcast the Indian Television premiere of ‘Little Women’, on November 29, at 1pm and 9pm.
An adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's 1868-69 two-volume novel of the same name, ‘Little Women’ is a modern retelling of the original story and marks the 150th anniversary of the release of the book.
Directed by Clare Niederpruem, the movie stars Lea Thompson, Sarah Davenport, Allie Jennings, Melanie Stone, Taylor Murphy and Elsie Jones. A contemporary narration of sisterhood, Little Women follows the lives of four sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March, detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood. The movie much like the classic fiction, is predominantly focused on Jo (played by Sarah Davenport), an aspiring writer living in New York, while back home in Massachusetts, her sisters carry on with their own lives. The film’s screenplay weaves together their past and present to show how they cling to optimism during harsh times and as they mature they face blossoming ambitions and relationships, as well as tragedy, while maintaining their unbreakable bond as sisters.
The movie continues to celebrate the spunk, bravery and love of the March sisters and explores the theme of womanhood in today’s century.
