26 Movies That Every Woman Should Watch In Her Lifetime
23The Color Purple
This multiple academy award winning movie made careers for Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg and even Steven Spielberg! To be honest this movie is not meant for everyone as its stark, dark and hard hitting as it gets. The horrors of a colored girl growing up amidst all sort of cruelty and exploitations in the rural ‘South’ during the turn of last century, hits us on the face sorely but not without telling us to hold on to that HOPE which keeps the protagonist from perishing.
24The Shape of Water
Some movie makers are not simply directors but artists in real sense of the word and Guillermo Del Toro is one such rare film maker who doesn’t make movies but creates an artwork. His latest offering ‘The Shape of Water’ is yet another beautiful painting for us to awe upon. He whimsically mixes fairy tale with crude science- fiction reality which finally overcomes with a great wave of single human emotion- LOVE. A Must Watch.
25The Blind Side
Among movies every woman must watch is the Blind Side. Based upon a book written by journalist Michael Lewis, who shadows through the pivotal years of the real Tuohy family this beautiful movie is much more than just a sentimental sports drama. This Sandra bullock starrer moves us incredibly and really makes us believe that there are good people in this world all around us. The magic of the movie is its simple narrative and linear positivity which is almost tangible.
Not exactly a convention girlie movie but Hidden Figures will inspire you no end. The story about black women mathematicians and computer engineers working at NASA and struggling to secure top positions under conditions of discrimination in the sixties is both heartwarming and inspiring. With stalwart performances by Taraji P Henson, Katherine Johnson, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons and Kevin Costner, the film is captivating form start to finish. The National Board of Review named it one of the best films of 2016.
