The film released on December 25, 2019, and has been well received by the audience. The critics have mixed reviews on the film and many believe the director Greta Gerwig has nicely tailored the book and added scenes from various parts of the book. The book Little Women has been written in two parts. Initially, Louisa May Alcott had the first part out and upon much demand came up with the second book, titled Good Wives.

The film is not in the chronological order of the book and has scenes going to and fro from different times in the book. The story in the film is a much later part of the book. The plot of the film goes as per the four sisters Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth shown in the earlier stage of their life and the latter stage where Meg is married with two children; Amy is well settled in Paris; Jo is a writer in New York; and how Beth's illness brings her back to Concord, Massachusetts.

Beth's illness brings the sisters back together and the rapid turn of events occur post that. The film has won many titles, awards, and accolades and has made news with its astonishing box office collection, surpassing the $100M mark.
