"Little Women"

Laura Dern portrays the March family matriarch Marmee in the film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel, which arrives in theaters on Christmas Day. Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlen and Florence Pugh star as the four March sisters. Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper are also part of the cast.

In addition to the movie, an audiobook narrated by Ms Dern debuts on Audible December 23.

"Being part of 'Little Women' has completely converted me into an Audible addict! I've fallen in love with audio -- it's a completely different acting experience. Audio is fantastic in its ability to let stories resonate through the voice alone. It's so private and intimate, you share the humor, irreverence and bravery of the writing with the listener in such a personal way," Dern said in a statement.
