REVIEW: Little Women (2019)

US Theatrical Release Poster – Sony Pictures Releasing

The following is a review of Little Women (2019) — Directed by Greta Gerwig.

Sure, AMPAS’ predictions were somewhat disappointing, and, frustratingly, many of the upcoming winners seem obvious at this point. It almost feels like only a little bit more than a handful of categories are competitive going into the big night. Today, I’m giving my final predictions for the big Oscar night — the Super Bowl for the film community.
