“Good For Her” Cinematic Universe

Hello and welcome to the “good for her” cinematic universe! Is there really anything better than thinking “good for her” while a woman achieves her dreams or receives an end to her story that is actually satisfying? NO!!! 

Would love to hear your suggestions for future additions! I do not add films to the list until after I’ve personally seen them! If I haven’t seen your suggestion, I’ll add it to my watchlist and attempt to see it asap! 

Looking for an IRL “good for her” watch? Check out the sister list, “Powerful Women IRL”, a list of female focused documentaries!

Please note: Being a member of this list does NOT always mean the character's ending is specifically being viewed as a stereotypical “happy ending”.
