After a few drinks last night, we decided there was nobody from a film that we wanted to be.

No women, anyway.

Maybe I’m watching the wrong films.

We wracked our brains and came up with Princess Leia…Princess Merida…Wonder Woman.

No thank you. I don’t want to be a fucking princess. Or wear a skin-tight catsuit.

Your other alternative is a psycho…Winona in Heathers. Una in Kill Bill.

Nope. Not fancying that either. And certainly not Bridget fucking Jones.

But all around me are kick arse women I wish I was more like, who have not been adapted for the Big Screen.

 

Role Models


his came from a drunken conversation last night, where I said I wanted to be Robin Williams in Dead Poet's Society, but then couldn't think of a female film character i'd want to be. My two friends struggled too. Maybe I am watching the wrong films, but are there female characters you watch on the big screen and aspire to be like?
