@tsarstepan,
I disliked all of them to be honest, but Jo in particular. Wouldn’t want to be any of them.

@tsarstepan,
Id do the three on the left. The one on the far right is an ax murderer.

@farmerman,
Oh, I misred the OP. I thought it said which one would you DO, Reading comp needs a wee bit a scrunchin down. Then when I went to change it, My pot ws locked in. My bad. I hope theyre all over the age of , whatchamacallit, you know, lik West Virginia. AFter all, I aint Jerry Lee Lewis or Woody Allen.

@tsarstepan,
Retitling “Little Women” to Entice Men to Go See It

My suggestions:
Bad Girls for Life; Jo-manji: The Next Level; Book Wars: The Rise of the Jo-Marcher; X-Women: Dark Megnix; Once Upon a Time in Concord; Laurie of the Rings; Jo March is My Name....
Any more I might have missed?

@tsarstepan,
The question for me was what was the real ending? Did Jo end up with the professor or is that the ending she was forced to add to sell the book?

@engineer,
What I gather... the Greta Gerwig 2019 version differs from the book (not having read the book but gathered from subsequent film reviews).

You have to be skeptical of the quiet ones. They're the ones who end up being serial killers.

@engineer,
Wait....

You, as a 21st century man, are suggesting that Louisa May Alcott wrote the "wrong" ending because she didn't have the strength of character to write the ending that you judge she should have written? It seems like you are taking away her agency.

Feminist men are funny.

@tsarstepan,
You see Jo selling the book where her Jo character remains single, the publisher says you can't do that, Jo comments that marriage is a transactional event and she is willing to change the ending in return for the terms she wants, then you see the ending as written by the author. My wife (who has read the book while I have not) says, yes, she ends up with the professor. I read the ending to mean that that's the way the book ends, but the author did not peruse that course in real life. Nice of Gerwig to add that twist.

But who you are has just come into focus.

It was a perfect touch. For one thing, it violated the typical dramatic convention of author as omnipotent and unbiased observer - that the work itself must not refer back to any author or to the writing/filming process. Such violations always win me over (Fleabag being a perfect example) because they inspire a playful and creative collaboration between audience and artist.

I thought the film brilliant in all aspects but particularly stellar re Gerwig and Ronan.

And watching it, I did imagine farmerman and Streep in passionate embrace.
