Greta Gerwig’s Ladybird vs. Rocky — Or: The Importance of the Female Perspective

Last night my partner and I were looking for a film to watch. I wanted to watch Greta Gerwig’s new film ‘Little Women’ after reading and hearing so much praise about it. I’ve been a huge fan of her work ever since I saw her first solo directorial adventure ‘Ladybird’. However, ‘Little Women’s trailer is, admittedly, very female driven. That’s the reason why I wanted to watch it. It was the same reason why my boyfriend wasn’t extremely keen to watch it, at least not yesterday.
