Insiders from a Nerdy Film Lover. Weaving together life lessons with movie history, film reporter Alicia Malone celebrates the power of cinema and the women who shone brightly on the big screen, while also critiquing hidden messages in films. Alicia connects film analysis with her own journey of self-discovery--from growing up as a nerdy film lover in Australia to finding her voice as a woman on television.
Each Movie has a Hidden Message. What messages and life lessons have been taken from these movies of the past--positive, negative or sometimes, both? Alicia Malone highlights many films, some with life changing moments and others with a tribute to feminist authors and messages.
In this modern approach to film reviews and women, you'll find essays on:
- Hidden messaging and life lessons in films
- The journey of women's history in film
- Breakdowns on movie stereotypes like the the femme fatale
Women nonfiction lovers who enjoyed Where the Girls Are, or feminism books like Extraordinary Women In History, When Women Invented Television, or Renegade Women in Film and TV, will love Girls on Film.
