Saoirse talks to IO Donna

Saoirse is featured on IO Donna, a renowed Italian magazine. Unfortunately for me, my italian is pretty tragic, but I did make an attempt at translating the article, and you can read it below. I apologize for any mistakes and would very much welcome corrections.

Our gallery has also been updated with the photoshoot featured on the article.

It is almost impossible for the actors to inspire tenderness outside a film set. The better they are, the greater the mistrust. But in the presence of Saoirse Ronan who, with genuine triumphalism, reveals: “Yesterday I got my license!” Not even the experienced reporter can prevent solidarity. And the feeling is that the 25 year old Irishwoman who received her first Oscar nomination when she was 13 (for Atonement, which was followed by two others) had a great desire to tell the world she grew up.

The condition of a child prodigy (and she is a prodigious child too), even if perhaps it is no longer as dangerous as it used to be, it is certainly uncomfortable. There is always someone ready to remind you of the stories that ended badly, the talents that disappeared, those in conflict with their parents, those unable to make the transition. Macaulay Culkin will forever be the child from “Home Alone”, while Jodie Foster still represents, at 56, the happy outcome. Saoirse, beyond the exoticism of the name (meaning “freedom”, which was very popular in the 1920s and was pronounced “Serscia”), is keen to let people know that she lives a fairly normal life. She works in Europe and America and rests in the Irish countryside, which she never misses an opportunity to exalt for its beauty and thaumaturgical properties on the body and the spirit.

First promotional stills from “Little Women”

The first promotional stills from Little Women have been released by Vanity Fair! Our gallery has been updated with the images, and you can read the article below.

Greta Gerwig doesn’t remember reading Little Women for the first time. “It must have been read to me,” she says when I ask for her earliest memories of author Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale of four girls imagining a world beyond their humble surroundings outside Civil War–era Boston.“I always knew who Jo March was,” Gerwig continues. “She was the person I wanted to be.”

In that, Gerwig has had plenty of company. Little Women is one of the most popular books in the history of American letters; after the first volume sold out its initial run of 2,000 copies in 1868, the novel has never been out of print. Simone de Beauvoir, born in 1908, pretended as a child that she was Jo—Alcott’s protagonist and stand-in, a determined, stubborn tomboy with a flair for writing. Ursula Le Guin says that Alcott’s Jo made writing as a girl feel possible. In film, Katharine Hepburn played Jo in 1933; Winona Ryder, in 1994. Now, Gerwig has created her own Jo for the screen in Saoirse Ronan, who also starred in Gerwig’s debut as a solo director, 2017’s Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.

Gerwig based that film on her own life, and Ronan’s character on herself. Still, Little Women might be even more personal to the director. (Her agent pointed this out to her, Gerwig tells me.) “This feels like autobiography,” Gerwig says. “When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life. … It becomes part of you, in a profound way.”
