What bothers me though, is how some haters are calling Claire anti-feminist. I even heard Joss Wheldon say she's a horrible female character. I don't get that? Yes, she's a bit snobby perfectionist, and definitely an A-type personality that's a workaholic, and unlike Owen, she's not use to dealing with wild animals, but when push comes to shove, Claire takes charge. How is that anti-feminist? Do you get where this hate is coming from Genelle?
Well I do actually have a problem with the way Claire was presented in the beginning of the film. She’s for the most part a stereotype of the hard-working woman who needs to ~loosen up (as we’re told by Masrani) and who will ~undoubtedly want children down the line (as we’re told by her sister) so there’s definitely an undercurrent of ‘Claire’s lifestyle and manner of being is not the way she’s supposed to be’ going on imo. It’s less about her character in and of itself and more about people’s reactions to her in the film that bother me. I like Claire, but that’s probably my biggest/only real complaint about the film as a whole.
