20 great Debut/female directors
One of the less reported stories of this August’s film schedule is that the month not only saw three films released that were directed by women, but they were in fact three feature debuts — Lake Bell’s “In A World” opened to a rapturous reception (including ours) on the 9th, Jerusha Hess’ “Austenland” bowed the following week, and this Friday Jill Solloway’s “Afternoon Delight” begins its run (our review is here). One swallow, or even three, may not make a summer, but these green shoots must certainly be promising for those in favor of changing the current female:male ratio in the film directing profession (which runs at 1 to 15.24 in the U.S. according to a Sundance Institute report) to a number that isn’t so outrageously out of whack that you have to keep double checking it. Yep, it’s 1:15.24.

As far as young actresses go, Chloe Moretz certainly has her pick of the litter when it comes to prospective projects at the moment. After dazzling audiences in the Martin Scorsese-directed “Hugo” this past fall, Moretz will next be seen in another high profile project, Tim Burton’s upcoming adaptation of the ‘70s British supernatural soap “Dark Shadows."
