Editorial recommends: Mothers, wives, lovers or women in film
Avatar: The essence of water
Our list opens with “Avatar: The Being of Water.” This sequel to the most profitable film of all time is an undoubted must see this fall. Even if you’re not a fan of fantasy films, it’s worth seeing. James Cameron has once again ensured amazing visual effects, a perfectly chosen soundtrack and a plot that features a theme of friendship stronger than anything else. Although it lasts well over two hours, you definitely won’t want to take your eyes off it. The action happens very fast there. This time it takes place on the ocean, when the heroes from the previous part join the Metkayina tribe in fleeing from the enemy army.
The film is a reflection of the director’s love for water. After all, James Cameron is a big fan of the sea depths and overcoming his own weaknesses in this area. He has personally investigated on more than one occasion, among others. The Mariana Trench or the interior of the sunken Titanic. His affirmation and love for the planet is evident in almost every second of the film. So get your tissues and a big bowl of popcorn ready!
The Little Mermaid
Staying in the climate of fairy tales, it is essential to mention the modern and film version of “The Little Mermaid.” Surely as a little girl you saw this Disney fairy tale more than once and followed the fate of the red-haired Ariel with bated breath. This time the main character is not only not a redhead, but also has a different skin color. This fact was widely reported in the media and stirred up a lot of controversy. Arielka is played by black actress Halle Bailey, who has already appeared in other lesser-known Disney productions. And if you’re already thinking at the start that she doesn’t fit the role after all, consider that this is a fairy tale after all, and all sorts of things can happen in a fairy tale, and “The Little Mermaid” is a perfect example of this.
The film is very light-hearted and features an old soundtrack in a revamped arrangement. It may not be a very outstanding cinema, but it will undoubtedly work well after a hard day at work. A return to childhood, a love plot and a handsome prince… what more could you want?
Book Club: The next chapter
If you are a fan of “Sex in the City” then you should also like this item. “Book Club: The next chapter” is another part of the film “A must-see item.” It tells the story of four mature women who set out to conquer Italy. This is not another boring tale of passing, as the main characters feel extremely young… and sexy! Throughout the film, they boldly show that it’s never too late in life to go a little crazy. All the ladies are now well into their 70s, but they have absolutely no intention of giving up anything because of it. They sip aperol, pick up men, talk about sex and tour Rome.
Both the plot and the cast of the film make for light and enjoyable viewing. Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Streenburgen will certainly not let you get bored. Invite your friends and spend a special autumn evening together.
Everything everywhere at once
The winner of the recent Oscars – the film “Everything Everywhere at Once” – will also be perfect for a Saturday evening. The main character, Evelyn Wang, played by Academy Award winner for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Michelle Yeoh will take you on an amazing journey through other universes. This film is a real masterpiece, combining many different threads to form a coherent whole. We can confidently say that the second film like this you definitely haven’t seen until now.
Evelyn is a middle-aged woman who accidentally ends up in parallel realities so she can see how her life would have turned out if she had chosen to be a chef, for example, instead of a family. This film will evoke many different emotions in you: from laughter to tears. Get ready for a really successful evening!
Women’s films without this item have no right to exist! “Holiday” is a timeless classic that slowly prepares us for the climate of the upcoming Christmas season. An all-star cast headed by Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz is an idea for a successful evening, and if Jude Law joins in with his seductive gaze, it really can’t get any better!
Two women who did not know each other before, having experienced love disappointments, decide to swap houses for a while to catch their breath and get away from problems with guys. And all would be well if… they didn’t fall in love again! If by some miracle you haven’t yet seen “Holiday,” this is the moment to catch up.
The Devil Wears Prada
For an autumn evening with a friend or sister, “The Devil Wears Prada” will also work. Did you know that this film is already 17 years old? Although it’s not the freshest item, it’s definitely worth watching more than once. The creation of the amazing Meryl Streep shows what a tremendous acting talent we are dealing with. The actress once wanted to become an opera star, and only by chance did she change her mind. And it’s lucky, because she’s perfect for the role of the titular devil.
In addition to her, the film will also feature Anne Hathaway, Emily Blant… and collections from top designers. A young intern, Andrea Sachs starts working at the fashion bible “Runway,” where the boss from hell, Miranda Priestly, leads the way. How will it develop? You probably already know, but it sure will be nice to remember.
Eat, pray and love
Another female-led film worth seeing… 519261 times is “Eat, Pray and Love” with an amazing performance by Julia Roberts. The main character, Elizabeth Gilbert leads an ordinary and seemingly very unhappy life, which she decides to change by embarking on an extraordinary journey to Italy, India and Indonesia. She doesn’t quite know what she is looking for or what she would like to achieve, but in doing so she is guided by Abraham Maslow’s pyramid of needs. He believes that in this way he will achieve the peace he has been seeking for so long.
The film is based on the bestseller of the same name, which broke records of popularity several years ago. Even if you haven’t read the book, its adaptation should be on your list.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
If you’re a fan of the classics, you’re undoubtedly familiar with “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” as well. This is one of those films that is not only worth knowing, but also worth knowing. Why? If only because it’s Audrey Hepburn’s flagship role. A beautiful brunette, with a high bun, wearing a little black dress and pearls around her neck – she started the trend.
Holly makes her living as an escort girl. Without hesitation, she takes advantage of the charms of life and the wallets of the men she spends time with. He has no reluctance to accept expensive gifts and dine in the most expensive restaurants. Everything changes when she meets a new neighbor, Paul, who deals with the same things she does. They quickly establish a thread of understanding and become friends, and from there it’s just one step to love. Will they succeed? Check it out for yourself!
Being on the subject of classics, we must also mention “Dirty Dancing.” Although the film has lived to see as many as three installments, we will definitely focus on the first one starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray. Upon its release in 1987, the film stirred up very extreme emotions. On the one hand, critics didn’t leave a dry eye on it for an overly predictable plot, but on the other hand, everyone wanted to see it. The extremely handsome Swayze moving his hips to the beat of catchy music proved to be a hit. As a result, the film earned millions of dollars and became one of the most-watched women’s films in the world.
House of Gucci
“House of Gucci” will appear as the last female film in our list. Even during production, there was talk of giving Lady Gaga a shot at an Oscar. That didn’t happen, but her role as Patrizia Reggiani will surely go down in history. She flawlessly played the role of a ruthless woman who can really do anything for money. Her strong character and stubbornness sets her apart from the male characters, of whom, although there are many in the film, none remain in the viewer’s memory for long.
The film “House of Gucci” is the story of the murder of Maurizio Gucci, president of the fashion house of one of Italy’s most famous brands. In it, Ridley Scott not only showed step by step how it happened, but most importantly focused on the demoralization and instincts that money awakens in people. Add to that a star-studded cast, great music and haute couture collections, and you’re in for an unforgettable evening!
Have a great evening!
If you already have the whole list and know what women’s films are worth watching this fall, don’t wait any longer.
