What better way to reinvent the classic tale of Little Women with a cast full of incredible actresses, and a woman director (Greta Gerwig).

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are part of the 2019 adaptation, as well as a couple of up-and-coming ones that you should definitely keep an eye on.

The official trailer for the movie was released yesterday, with the film set to drop in the US on Christmas day.

So, although we have a fairly long time to wait until we can watch it in cinemas, its clear the hype is building to the festive season and some wholesome watching.

With that in mind, lets take a look at the cast of Little Women, and where youll have seen them before.

Making her way into meatier roles, she played an LA house robber in The Bling Ring, and a dreamy teen in Perks of Being a Wallflower.

As Belle in Beauty and the Beast in 2017, she then proved that she could go from serious to fantasy with no problems.

Previously, she has won awards for her portrayal as Katherine Lester in Lady Macbeth, and gained traction in John Le Carre adaptation The Little Drummer Girl on the BBC.

We expect bigger things to come for 23-year-old Florence, so keep an eye out.

Emmerdale spoilers: Ryan Hawley reveals all on Robert Sugdens exit

(Picture: ITV)

Robert Sugden hasnt had an easy couple of months in Emmerdale — what with him having been charged for GBH with intent for brutally assaulting Victoria Bartons (Isabel Hodgins) rapist Lee — but things are set to get much worse for the beloved character before his on-screen exit arrives, and actor Ryan Hawley has all the gossip on Roberts exit.

Robert was livid when he first learned about what had happened to Victoria, and thus he set out to seek revenge on her behalf — in spite of her consistently asking him not to. After multiple failed attempts to get justice for what Lee did, Robert lost control and picked up a shovel, before hitting the rapist on the back of the head — and he was charged for the crime as a result.

He ended up pleading guilty so that he could save Victoria having to lie on his behalf in court, and since then hes been enjoying the free time hes got left with husband Aaron (Danny Miller). On Roberts current state of mind, Ryan said: Hes waiting for the inevitable.He is however, optimistic that it is going to only be a short amount of time that hes going to be away for.

I believe, worst case scenario – only a couple of years. He is quite confident in the fact that he has pled guilty so sentencing will be a bit more lenient.

Roberts circumstances are set to worsen in the coming episodes, as he learns that Lee has passed away in hospital. The ramifications that the rapists death will have on his prison sentence is the main cause of concern, as its now incredibly likely that hell be charged with murder for what he did to the young man.

Robert understandably struggles to process this information, but Liv (Isobel Steele) offers up a solution, when she suggests that he and Aaron go on the run together.

Ryan said: The news has just been broken to them so they havent really got a plan, they are going to have to take it as it comes. It means some very emotional goodbyes to some people in the village, but they have to be quick and there are some people they dont even get the chance to because Read More – Source

Holby City review with spoilers: Ric opts for the risky surgery after Darla decides to keep the baby

Ric considers his options (Picture: BBC)

First the good news on tonights Holby City – Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie)s brain tumour is benign. Unfortunately the bad news is very bad indeed. The tumour is huge, which makes surgery to remove it extremely difficult, according to Ric. The risks are very high that he could have a stroke or not survive the surgery at all. Leaving the tumour where it is could be an option, but it will probably keep on growing and compress his brain, leading to more mood swings, more forgetfulness and worse. His days as a surgeon would definitely be over very soon.

Because he had Darla (Naomi Katiyo) to worry about, he decided that he wouldnt risk the surgery and would try to manage the symptoms of the tumour with drugs. He also decided not to worry Darla by telling her about his diagnosis.

Everything changed when Darla was visited by Peter (Jordan Adene), the father of her baby, who proved to be a very mature, supportive and sensible 15 year old. Donna (Jaye Jacobs) had already detected in Darla signs of doubt that she wanted to go through with having her baby adopted and Peters arrival cemented her decision – she wanted to keep her daughter. Peter said hed get a job and theyd manage.

Ric was on board with this plan because hes always wanted whatever makes Darla happy. Then Peters father (Daniel Adegboyega), an elder of the church, arrived and kicked off a bit. He accused Darla of trying to trap his son and said the baby might not even be Peters. There was a bit of a tussle as he tried to take Peter away and Ric ended up being thrown to the ground and knocked unconscious.

Ric wasnt seriously hurt, but as everyone clustered around his bedside Cameron (Nic Jackman) said something about his serious condition in front of Darla, so Ric had no option but to tell her the truth. Peter proved that hes a keeper by smoothing things out with Darlas dad, so Darla is going to move back in with Kofi and bring up the baby, after making Ric promise that he has to do whats best for him and not delay the surgery just for her sake. And theyre naming the baby Erica, after her great-granddad – which made him fill up. She wouldnt be here now if it werent for you, Darla said. And Cameron, he reminded her, But Ericas a better name.

Ric apologised to Zav (Marcus Griffiths) and Donna for his recent behaviour and told them hes going to go for the surgery, because he wants to carry on being a surgeon himself if theres even a slim chance.

Meanwhile a small bunch of supporting artists had assembled to give Essie (Kaye Wragg) a party to welcome her new adopted baby. This was mainly a plot device so one of the cards would be found later on by Connor (Calum Lill) – Islas father. Hed come to the hospital to get Frankies phone number from Essie but he soon worked out that Essie is pretending that Isla is her legally adopted daughter. Sacha (Bob Barrett) tried to help Essie out by warning Connor off but only succeeded in making the situation worse. Essie finally resorted to good old faRead More – Source
