Greatest films about female solidarity

Reader’s Digest
Greatest films about female solidarity
March 19, 2018

From Steel Magnolias to Frances Ha, these are our favourite films about female solidarity.

If there’s one thing that life can guarantee, it’s unpredictability. When life doesn’t appear to be going according to plan and nothing seems to be going as it should, one of the few things you can be certain of is that your fellow women are going to be there with you no matter what. This rings true for Aurore (Agnès Jaoui), in I Got Life! – a timely and uplifting film celebrating womanhood which arrives in UK cinemas on March 23rd. Read More

Editor’s Choice: ‘Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies’

Editor’s Choice: ‘Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies’

“Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies” by Hadley Freeman, Simon and Schuster, 339 pages, $16 paperback original.

Let’s start with “Steel Magnolias.” What is widely known now as as the Bechdel Movie Test for well-represented women in movies, came from cartoonist Allison Bechdel whose formulation was: A movie “has to have at least two women in it. 2) Who talk to each other. 3) About something besides a man.” U. K. Guardian columnist Freeman formulates the “Magnolia Test” to determine “whether or not a movie is a proper women’s movie: 1) The cast is largely, maybe even solely, female. 2) The female characters talk to each other about a million things other than men and genuinely like each other .3) And the relationship between the women is far more important than any they have with a man. 4) Bonus points if any of the following are in the film: Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler, Olympia Dukakis. Triple for Sally Field.” Read More

When You Switch Up on a (Broadway) Star

New York Times
When You Switch Up on a (Broadway) Star
By BEN BRANTLEY and JESSE GREENJULY 12, 2017

JESSE GREEN The problem with successful musicals is how to keep them that way. Often the difference between a borderline hit and a smash depends more on the second cast, and the third, than the first. As critics, we get to see a parade of alternates and replacements in major roles; right now the biggest example on Broadway is Donna Murphy’s opening earlier this week as the Tuesday-evening alternate for Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!But we have also been keeping an eye on how new casts are affecting a war horse like “Kinky Boots” and, on a smaller scale, the long-running Off Broadway production of “Sweeney Todd.” Read More
