All hail. Watch #TheKing in select theaters and on Netflix this fall.
Hal, wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff.
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women 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.
Vanity Fair has released the first production stills of Little Women! I’ve added two stills of Timothée as Laurie to the gallery.
VANITY FAIR – Opposite Ronan, Timothée Chalamet (another Lady Bird carryover) plays heartthrob Laurie, the literal boy next door who develops an intense friendship with Jo. Ronan and Chalamet are close in real life, which added to their chemistry. Their characters’ friendship never becomes romantic, despite Laurie’s proposal—and the book’s fans’ copious letters to Alcott.
“I loved that in Lady Bird, he was the one that broke my heart, but I got to break his heart in Little Women,” says Ronan, laughing.
Tim attended the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood after party during the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival (May 21).
