Screen a Not-Your-Average Chick Flick
Martha Plimpton, cofounder of the reproductive rights group A Is For
and star of Fox's Raising Hope
, shares four female-forward movies more than worthy of a rental.
"Sigourney Weaver's gladiatorial dedication to exterminating an enormous, terrifying, bloodthirsty beast is rooted in something mythic."
"Gena Rowlands gives my favorite female performance, bar none, in this thriller. I could watch it five times a day, every day, till I'm dead."
I Am Love
"This is a movie about intimacy and risk, and the ways in which they do battle. To me, it gets to the heart of the female experience."
Terms of Endearment
"One of the most honest portrayals of a single mother–daughter relationship ever."
