Mona Lisa Smile, 2003
No other film provides such. A compelling example of how a single, progressive thinker can sway the minds of so many. The movie is all about women’s rights; the right to make the choices you want, not the choices society dictates. A new college teacher, Catherine Watson, tries to use her art classes to help. Her students keep up with the times to get the message that women should be independent. A higher education But getting used to this idea is not easy, not only for the students. Because all their lives they just did what they dreamed of marriage, but also for the teaching staff, for whom. Catherine’s ideas were totally unacceptable.
Northern Country, 2005
Who says a woman’s place is at the cooker? What if she wants to work in a mine because it pays well and she has children to feed? The main character, Josie Ames, returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota to find her. She has to find a job and has to work at it. A mine where almost all the local men, including her father, work The few women working in the mine are few and far between. They all have to endure the harsh taunts and negative attitudes of the men. One can, of course, keep silent and tolerate, but then how can one defend one’s rights and dignity? “North Country” is a film based on true events, touching on the story of the first sexual harassment case.
Turning into Jane, 2006
Great Britain, Ireland
That’s the literal translation of the title of the English film. Becoming Jane, starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy, although you may also come across the title “Jane Austen”. In fact, it’s the story of the famous British author that the filmmakers have tried to recreate. And if you’ve read Pride and Prejudice or seen the film, you’ll find a lot of points of overlap. The film also tells the story of Austen’s rise as a writer and her first and only love, Thomas Lefroy. because the young people’s marriage would have been impractical.
As both families were relatively poor and hoped to take advantage of their offspring’s marriages to improve their financial and social standing, Jane and Tom were never destined to be together. But the writer flatly refused to marry at the age of thirty, and so Jane put on a bonnet, announcing to the world that she was henceforth an old maid.
