We brought ten movies every woman should watch before she’s 40 for this list. The films listed bring the female figure as a driving force for the nuances of their stories, which vary, for example, between divorce, life in an extremely sexist society of the 1950s, forbidden novels, mourning and psychological disorders to be overcome. All the items listed are characterized as good works, worth all the time invested and provoking the most diverse emotions in the spectators. Let’s go to the list!
10º – 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 at the expense of abrupt changes. Directed by Woody Allen, ‘Blue Jasmine’ sincerely exposes several of the dilemmas inherent in life, bringing a beautiful construction of his central character (played by actress Cate Blanchett).
9º – Carol (Todd Haynes, 2015)In the middle of the 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 destructive family and social arches being studied. ‘Carol’ is an aesthetically impeccable film, with an incredible direction, a stunning cinematography and an engaging soundtrack, bringing old questions about the not always positive influence that the social compendium has on a person.
8º – September (Woody Allen, 1987)In a country house in Vermont, we will insert ourselves into a tangle of unrequited love relationships, explaining the erratic behaviour of each individual present in the place. Committed cast, concise plot and its short duration make ‘September’ a comprehensive and dynamic film, working with several distinct characters. Good option inside Woody Allen’s filmography.
