The coming of age story of the sisters is set in the 1860s, is still relevant and ever modern in its content commented Laura Dern. Ronan said that she re-read the book for the film, and it is radical and incredibly stylish. She added that the story is so relevant now to the confidence that women have in themselves and in taking their path.
