Clueless (1995) Amy Heckerling
Quintessential 90’s teen movie but with female characters who are allowed to control their own agency. Vibrant, clever with a cast of charming performers, it’s a film I wish I’d seen when I was a teen.
Walking and Talking (1996) Nicole Holofcener
I like to consider myself as a connoisseur of movies about the bonds between women because boy is it important to see. So often women are at each other’s throats in film, if they’re actually allowed to share a screen, and Nicole Holofcener has made a career off of showcasing relationships between women.
Mansfield Park (1999) Patricia Rozema
I mentioned that I loved period films and Mansfield Park and this one has yet another kick ass woman at the lead.
Something New (2006) Sanaa Hamn
I will recommend any romantic comedy with Sanaa Lathan.
