Greta Gerwig on Art, Commerce, and Female Ambition
Kickass News
Director/writer Greta Gerwig discusses her Oscar nominated film adaptation of the beloved classic Little Women, how she imbued her movie with even more of author Louisa May Alcott's own personality, and why it was important for her to give a nod to the author's original intended ending.  She talks about the status of female directors and writers in Hollywood, recalls a conversation she once had with a studio executive about how women talk, and how Meryll Streep inspired some of the film's most insightful dialogue about a woman’s role in 19th Century society.  Greta also reveals that she was secretly pregnant while filming Little Women and what it is like to be in competition with her husband Noah Baumbach for Best Picture this year.  Plus we talk about why actresses in the 30’s and 40’s got better roles than they do today, our mutual love of the films of George Cukor and Greta Garbo, and the wicked wit of Dorthy Parker. See Greta Gerwig's wonderful film Little Women in theaters now.  Check your local listings for showtimes or visit  Today's episode was sponsored by Kronos HR Solutions.   See for privacy information.

Greta Gerwig (REPLAY): On Choosing Not To Be On Social Media
Ctrl Alt Delete
Hello and welcome back. I'm replaying some old favourite episodes this week while I am on holiday. This episode was recorded in February 2018. I met Greta in the Soho Hotel for the interview to talk about the release of her film Ladybird. Since then, of course she's gone on to make the incredible masterpiece that is her own version of Little Women that she wrote and directed. The film received six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and it also received nominations at the BAFTAs and Golden Globe Awards. Hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane!
