Perhaps not applicable, yo. There's a school of criticism which examines marketed movie "feminism" that is not really a threat to the patriarchy/falls under the "male gaze". For a recent, far more egregious example: Sucker Punch. Something worth considering. wink

With this list, however, I was simply curating well-written and made, interesting films that happen to feature coming-of-age (or similar) stories with lead female characters who further the narrative.

I am often asked for this style of recommendation from parents who want to find intelligent media for their daughters or peers looking for insight into films they haven't yet heard of.

From Andre
Agreed. Yes, Sucker Punch was bad. Not what I expected. Though I wouldn't recommend Winter's Bone to young girls. Great film. Adult themes. But I get your point.

In regard to Winter's Bone: Teens and young adults are over 17 or close to. No one here has suggested the film for young girls, by which I assume you mean tweens and younger.

Yes, you are correct. Forgive me. As soon as I wrote that comment, I realized my mistake. I've been working on limiting my comebacks/quips. Stover 1, Coles 0
