Movies: 6 Great Films

I haven’t posted a movie post in a really long time, I don’t know why-considering I’ve done nothing but watch movies all winter. We’re working down a list of favorites, so I’ve got to give my boyfriend credit for quite a few of these {with the exception of Real Women Have Curves-great film, by the way} Here are 6 I’ve seen recently that can help kick start your weekend.

The Painted VeilA British medical doctor fights a cholera outbreak in a small Chinese village, while also being trapped at home in a loveless marriage to an unfaithful wife.

The Girl With The Dragon TattooA journalist is aided in his search for a woman who has been missing — or dead — for forty years by a young female hacker.

The InterpreterPolitical intrigue and deception unfold inside the United Nations, where a US Secret Service agent is assigned to investigate an interpreter who overhears an assassination plot.

Made In Dagenham (now out in select theaters..go see it!) A dramatization of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.

AmreekaA drama centered on an immigrant single mother and her teenage son in small town Illinois.

Real Women Have Curves {early America Ferrera, good stuff!} Coming of Age story of a first generation latina Ana García (America Ferrera) who struggles to balance her family’s culture where she is expected to work in her sister’s dress warehouse, find a husband and have children and forget her dreams of a college education.
