Inspired by the article ''20 Great Films about The Complexity of Women'' from Taste of Cinema.
''In the last few years we have seen the number of complains about the lack of good female roles increase. Audiences are not satisfied with the archetypes, that once were considered the norm, for portraying women in cinema and are looking for movies in which the woman isn’t exclusively an accessory.
Recently there has been a big change in that sense. Female lead movies are creating more buzz and topping the box office. Take a look at The Hunger Games, one of the most successful franchises of all times, Gone Girl, an unexpected hit that would cause a very different reaction if it was released ten years ago, and this year’s Mad Max that focused more on the fierce female lead than on the titular character.
Nevertheless, complex female characters have always existed, you just needed to look closer. This list features some examples of the best portrayals of women in film.''
