3º – Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen, 2013)After divorcing her rich husband, a middle-aged woman will have to relearn how to live her daily life, facing psychological crises to the detriment of abrupt changes. Directed by Woody Allen, ‘Blue Jasmine’ sincerely exposes several of life’s inherent dilemmas, bringing a beautiful construction of her central character (played by actress Cate Blanchett).
2º – Carol (Todd Haynes, 2015)In the mid 1950s, a married woman finds herself in love with a young aspiring photographer. The plot gains its substance by exploring the consequences of this passion in their lives, with the destructive family and social arches being studied. ‘Carol’ is an aesthetically impeccable film, with incredible direction, stunning cinematography and an engaging soundtrack, bringing old questions about the not always positive influence that the social compendium has on a person.
1º – Elizabeth (Shekhar Kapur, 1998)The film brings the first years of Elizabeth I’s reign, showing all the problems of the period and how this important name in history dealt with them. An irrefutable biography, ‘Elizabeth’ uses a more cadenced rhythm to tell each fragment of the story, managing to involve and surprise the viewer. We still have in the film the incredible performance of actress Cate Blanchett as the protagonist.
