Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women (Sony, 12.25) is apparently…okay, obviously a Best Picture contender. The Gold Derby gang has been presuming this all along but here’s the first serious indication of same. Obviously and necessarily composed through the lens of contemporary woke-itude. Saoirse Ronan‘s performance as Jo will almost certainly result in a Best Actress nomination. Already adoring the rosey-amber tones in Yorick Le Saux‘s interior cinematography. I’ve been hearing all along that Florence Pugh delivers a striking supporting performance (she supposedly has a stand-out monologue moment) and is the strongest acting contender apart from Ronan. But the trailer cutters decided to focus on Saoirse, Timothee Chalamet and the Barry Lyndon-ish lensing.
