Miniseries: Little Women
Saturday, abc, 7.30pm
Part 1 of 3. It may seem like there are more than enough dramatisations of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women ,b ut can you really ever have enough of the March sisters? This mini-series is done quite beautifully and has boasts a terrific cast. Emily Watson (Angela’s Ashes)
plays Marmee while Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote) takes on the role of Aunt March. The sisters may be lesser known but the casting is still excellent. Maya Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, takes on the role of Jo, Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies) plays Amy, Willa Fitzgerald (Scream )is Meg and newcomer
Annes Elwy plays Beth.
