In-Person Conversations with Greta Gerwig & Saoirse Ronan and Martin Scorsese & Robert DeNiro
Friday, January 3, 2020 – 6:30 PM – Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood A Conversation with Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan + Double Feature of LITTLE WOMEN and LADY BIRD
2019, Sony Pictures, 134 min, USA, Dir: Greta Gerwig
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (LADY BIRD) has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms in the wake of the Civil War – is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee and Meryl Streep as Aunt March. “Gerwig’s adaptation looks at the eponymous little women through ambitious storytelling techniques that modernize the book’s timeless story in unexpected ways.” – Kate Erbland, IndieWire.
LADY BIRD2017, A24, 94 min, USA, Dir: Greta Gerwig
Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut excavates both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, LADY BIRD is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
