Showing in the Afternoon: Little Women (U)
A lovely, appealing and fresh literary adaptation from Greta Gerwig of this immortal 19th century novel by by Louisa May Alcott about a large family of girls coming of age in Massachusetts. This innovative and polished cinematic version opts to shuffle the scenes and tells the story almost entirely out of order. The script is wryly comical and embellished by a brilliant performance from Meryl Streep as wealthy Aunt March. Gerwig has cleverly taken the dialogue as it was written by Alcott but has her actors delivering the lines in a tumbling clutter of ideas which works fabulously. Two of the greatest young actresses working today, Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh, make the most of every opportunity to shine in this refreshing adaptation that subtly updates the text without losing the charming qualities that have led to four major film adaptations and counting.
Tickets are £5.00 for children/ students / concessions £6.50 for adults. There will also be specific movie themed menus and of course popcorn on offer!
