현재 페미니즘에 대한 영리한 각색 : 거윅의 『작은 아씨들』



This study examines the adaptation technique, the breaking linear timeline, and its effects in the movie Little Women(2019) by Greta Gerwig. She adapted the original novel of Louisa May Alcott, connecting the messages of love, art, and money with the modern viewpoint of them. For this, Gerwig dissects the time of the original novel, jumping back and forth in the story. Shifting timeline back and forth is a key factor of feminist theatrical apparatuses, which is used for unveiling how to make the now from the past. Ambitious and talented women from the past have made their ways regardless of the patriarchal social oppression on their economical independence and marriage. Gerwig begins the movie with four sisters’ adulthood, making it flash back to their childhood unlike the novel. Her creative and smart adaptation gives Little Women a modern feminist interpretation; the modern appreciation of female characters, social criticism on the inequality of women’ potentials, the ending that Alcott wanted―Jo who remains as a spinster. The happy ending without marriage and the women’ pursuit of their own dreams reflect the fourth wave of the feminist movement, which pursues egalitarian relationship and co-existence with men by denying the conventional ideas of sexuality, marriage, and family.
