Film Suggestions About Women

Hey! I'm looking for movies about women who want to be high class and/or rich and famous. Not a "Cinderella" type story but one that is darker... Thanks!

Looking for recommendations for great women ensemble films!

Just saw Mona Lisa Smile for the first time and loved the acting in it. Now I'm on the hunt for great recommendations for all-women or prominently women ensemble movies. Release the hounds!

Wardrobe remix: the movie

This morning I was thinking about how in the movie Housesitter, Goldie Hawn's character wears a very limited number of pieces of clothing combined in a variety of different ways. My mom pointed this out to me at a very impressionable age, and noted how this was much more realistic than infinite wardrobes. I'm wondering what other other movies have an obviously finite wardrobe for a lead female character?

James Bond, women, fleeing death

How many times has James Bond used a woman's body to prevent himself from getting killed (blocked a bullet from hitting him with a woman, etc)?

All the crazy ladies (don't put a ring on it)

I'm looking for more movies of a specific crazy/independent lady vibe, and this vague vibe spans genre: I want movies about women folk, especially ones with a witty or dark streak. I'm thinking of films like Heathers, Secretary, The Piano, Portrait of a Lady, Virgin Suicides, All About Eve, Winter's Bone and Ghost World. What else should I see? [more inside]

FemFilmFilter.

Hypothetically, let's just say you . . . I dunno . . . are in charge of "movie night" for 40 womyn, who work with victims of . . . let's say . . . sexual assault on a daily basis. What films would you recommend? A little on the lighter side is preferable, but Thelma and Louise-ish is okay, too. An apt theme might be "Right on, sister!"
