Actor, writer, director--Greta Gerwig has shone in multiple roles during her short yet profoundly influential career. This February, The Roxy celebrates five of the major achievements of this singular presence in contemporary American film. We're showcasing her star-making performances in Frances Ha, Mistress America, and Greenberg, and the masterpieces she wrote and directed, Little Women (closing off its phenomenal run at The Roxy with a week of 35mm) and Lady Bird. It's just our way of showing our Greta-tude. 

With Little Women, Gerwig has crafted a film 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 --  is both timeless and timely.  Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
