Girl Power

This was a list I made in my notes tab that I totally forgot I even made. I think the title is a bit self explanatory but even further I'd say this isn't necessarily about female representation in cinema but films with actual female characters who are strong and play interesting roles that either drive the force of the film or elevate the film itself. Basically these are the type of women that bring something new to the table. To me these are films that contain female characters who break the mold of more conventional or traditional female characters or women who serve as a man's love interest. So here's to the awesome women of cinema! (Side note: If I'm leaving out any films just suggest them and if it fits I'll add it or check it out if I haven't seen it, I always love film recs)
