Women and Film
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This fourth volume in the series examines the portrayal of women in film, as well as their involvement in the medium-as filmmakers, screenwriters, actresses, critics, and characters. Distinguished North American and British scholars and film critics examine films such as Cukor's Women, Wilder's Sunset Boulevard, and Benton's Kramer vs. Kramer. Also included are articles on Jane Fonda, Marguerite Duras, and Marilyn Monroe; on realist films and television drama; and on female audience and the feminist critic. The entire collection of essays is introduced by an insightful discussion of feminist film theory.
