Beauty & The Beast
A Disney classic that features a rare character personality sighting–a male lead who doesn’t quite have his shit together and is in desperate need of a woman. Follow the life of a handsome young prince, arrogant and superficial, cursed to be a monster on the search for the only way to break the spell with a looming rose flower time limit. Re-watch this vintage animation and appreciate one of the few films that broke stereotypes for the male sex.
An ambitious and goal-driven young woman, Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) decides to run for the position of that not much teenagers vie for which to be the student body president. Backed with her very own mother’s ideological feeding of strong and tough cookie women all throughout history, this opinionated film focuses the limelight on a youth who knows what she wants and is unafraid to take it–sometimes even with underhanded tactics.
Going against the grain of the quiet and obedient stereotype for all the right reasons, Beth (Judith Godrèche) desperately tries to regain control over her youth as her mother persuades her to do the extreme–accept the affections of the aging physician sugardad for purely financial reasons. This 90s French classic does not only defy the meek personality a budding woman is expected to have but also rather, the aged belief that what adults say are absolute and are always right.
