Little Women wins first Best Picture award from Boston Society of Film Critics


Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Saoirse Ronan and Eliza Scanlen in Little Women

The Boston Society of Film Critics are on hand to offer a pleasant corrective to one of awards season's most egregious oversights! Two female-directed movies top their Best Picture poll, in a year (relatively) brimful of awards contenders from women directors yet light on recognition for them. Greta Gerwig's Little Women is a strong presence throughout the BSFC's 2019 awards slate, winning four prizes, while voters still found space for other excellent choices such as Parasite and Portrait of a Lady on Fire.
