Underrated Gems For Girl Week
You know I love my indies, and so my last contribution to Dell's wonderful Girl Week is going through my catalog of reviews and sharing some of my favorite female led favorites. Click the titles if you wish to read the old reviews
Kathryn Hahn and Juno Temple give wonderful performances as a bored housewife who attempts to "save" a woman who doesn't need it.
I only reviewed this last year but I can't help but love this little lady. I think this is one of the best movies out there that incorporates religion into its plot, if not the best.
This follows a young girl who deals with her mother's transition.Director Sophie Hyde actually shot this movie on each Tuesday for an entire year with no professional actors and it's remarkable how it turned out.
I Used To Be Darker
This title sums me up, I tend to gravitate towards stuff like this. Taryn is a teenager who runs away to live with her aunt and uncle only to arrive at the worst possible time.
Luminita Gheorghiu gave an Oscar worthy performance as a mother who's feeling the sting of her son leaving the nest...and then some.
I feel like I talk about this French coming of age film all the time but SEE IT
Violet and Daisy
What better way to celebrate Girl Week then a female led assassin comedy? This one is for you.
Hello I Must Be Going
Another one I've mentioned frequently, but Melanie Lynskey gives a career best performance here.
Wicked Little Things
I can't make a list without adding a little horror. I fully admit that this isn't great, but it's creepy and focuses on a mom and her two daughters dealing with ghosts.
Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick is not talked about enough. She absolutely shines in this movie.
Notes on a Scandal
This is one of my favorite movies from the year it came out. You can't go wrong with Dame Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett
This film was the first indie gem I shared on my blog. I could relate so easily to lonely Audrey and her relationship with her friend Calista
Thank you for hosting Girl Week, Dell!
