Fem­i­nism on-screen

CLEO (Singapore) - - SMART REPORT -

To­day’s movie hero­ines are a lit­tle more well-rounded, a lit­tle more as­pi­ra­tional and have a lot more depth be­yond their boob size and fash­ion.

Won­der Woman Gal Gadot’s Won­der Woman shows that a woman can be multi-faceted. She is both emo­tional and a real bad-ass. And she’s a box of­fice suc­cess. Belle ( BeautyandtheBeast) Dis­ney’s orig­i­nal an­i­mated ver­sion was pretty book-smart to be­gin with, but with Emma Wat­son tak­ing the lead in the live-ac­tion ver­sion, we all got a mod­ern-day fem­i­nist princess to aspire to be. Jyn Erso ( RogueOne: AS­tarWarsS­tory) Not only does Felic­ity Jones’ char­ac­ter mas­ter­mind the plan to steal the Death Star plans, she also car­ries the movie with just as much aplomb as any male lead would.
