I love movies about siblings, if you have the time, would you be so kind to recommend some by women directors? You have a very great taste.
Well firstly thank you for the compliment! But also thank you for the question! Having a sister myself I am super partial to movies about sisterhood but I’ll try to throw in a few with brothers as well!
Some of my faves:
The Parent Trap - Nancy Meyers The Savages - Tamara Jenkins Belle - Amma Asante Eve’s Bayou - Kasi Lemmons Little Women - Gillian Armstrong Raw - Julia Ducournau My Brother the Devil - Sally El Hosaini Mustang - Deniz Gamze Ergüven Songs My Brothers Taught Me - Chloé Zhao Into the Forest - Patricia Rozema Lovely and Amazing - Nicole Holofcener Sweetie - Jane Campion The Midnight Swim - Sarah Adina Smith
Also, even though it’s not a movie, the TV series Queen Sugar, which is entirely directed by women, is focused around three adult siblings so you might want to give that a shot.
“In society, we’re just not prepared for a woman to play like a man. If you look at all past winners who are female…they want to vote for the girl next door. They don’t want that sly woman who lied and calculated and backstabbed people. They’ll give it to a man because that’s what society is prepared for. Why’d they give it to Lisa? She was the girl next door.” — Danielle Reyes
