Cate Blanchett in "Blue Jasmine"

Films About Women Opening This Weekend

The To Do List - Written and Directed by Maggie Carey
The teen sex comedy is a staple subgenre of teen films. Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds and American Pie are just some of the films that have brought sex puns and now grossly iconic uses of apple pie into pop culture. However it is genre that rarely, if ever, stars women. The teen sex comedy has a predominately male focus--usually a plain Jim everyman (he's not bad looking but not someone you'd lose focus in Algebra over) who is desperate to toss away his virginity at the hottest female specimen he can find. Many times, he loses it to the girl who has "been there all along" usually behind a pair of glasses. Read more. (Kerensa Cadenas)


Breaking the Girls - Directed by Jamie Babbit, written by Guinevere Turner and Mark Distefano

Directed by beloved cult filmmaker Jamie Babbit and written by Guinevere Turner and Mark Distefano, Breaking the Girls is a thriller revolving around a dangerous pact between sexy twentysomethings Sara (Agnes Bruckner) and Alex (Madeline Zima). When Sara meets Alex at a bar one night, an intense relationship immediately forms between them and quickly goes to a dark place. Each of the girls discovers an urge to rid themselves of a special enemy and  their furtive plotting and sexual relationship quickly escalates to a tangled web of violence and lies. (From the Press Materials)


Blue Jasmine

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again. (Indiewire)


First Comes Love -Directed by Nina Davenport (doc)

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage. For filmmaker Nina Davenport, that old playground song didn't go as planned. Single at age forty-one, she decides to have a baby on her own, never minding the odds stacked against her or the extra hurdles of living in New York City. Filming the whole process, she excels at candour and comedy. Think of a real-life Girls, only with more grown-up problems. (From Official Site)

Films By and About Women on DVD/And Or On Demand

Ginger and Rosa - Written and Directed by Sally Potter

Set in 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, best friends Ginger and Rosa are inseparable in that way only teen girls can be. They bathe together, languishly smoke cigarettes, furiously make out with boys in darkened alleyways and even wear matching outfits. The film follows the pair throughout their day to day lives, giving us the inevitable feeling that growing up, especially in such a turbulent time, will wreak havoc on the two. This kind of obsessive female love is always the most devastating when it falls apart.

Kiss of the Damned - Xan Cassavetes

If you are a fan of horror films, especially not the torture porn crap of late, you'll love Xan Cassavetes' Kiss of the Damned. It is the story of Djuna (Josephine de La Baume) a vampire who lives alone in a sprawling mansion outside New York City. When Djuna meets sexy screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia) their chemistry is automatic. She turns him quickly as they settle into eternal domestic bliss. This is upended with the arrival of Djuna's younger and crazy sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) who threatens both Djuna's new relationship and the entire vampire community with her insane antics.
