Gas Food Lodging (1992) Allison Anders
A great movie about sisters and the relationships between mothers and daughters. The emotional impact will creep up on you.
Eves Bayou (1996) Kasi Lemmons
Integral for viewers looking to educated themselves on women in film with a stacked cast, Eves Bayou is an underrated classic.
Orlando (1992) Sally Potter
Unlike any film I saw in the past year, Sally Potter embraced Tilda Swinton’s androgynous nature before anyone else and created a film that’s beautiful to look at, deeply contemplative and quietly soaring.
Just Another Girl On the I.R.T (1993) Leslie Harris
Lively, fresh and enthusiastic, the film is a nod to youthfulness as a girl struggles with hiding a pregnancy.
