My attempt to watch 52 Films By Women (in writing or directing roles), isn’t going entirely well – by halfway through the year, I had only chalked up 18, which is far fewer than half of 52. Here’s what I watched in the second quarter of the year.
Love Simon – Co-written by Elizabeth Berger
Girls Trip – Co-written by Tracy Oliver
Everything, Everything – Directed by Stella Meghie
Heartburn – Written by Nora Ephron
Romancing the Stone – Written by Diane Thomas
District 9 – Co-written by Terri Tatchell
Halloween – Co-written by Debra Hill
Ocean’s 8 – Co-written by Olivia Milch
There’s clearly a huge bias towards female writers in this bunch, rather than directors, which is a shame, so I need to be a little more active with searching those out. I am determined to get to 52, it just means fitting another 34 into the remaining months of the year (spoiler, since the end of June, I’ve managed just one!).
