Belgium's wonderful and worthy Oscar submission
Belgium's Oscar submission, Frédéric Fonteyne and Anne Paulicevich's delightful and insightful Working Girls, is about a trio of French women who are sex workers in Belgium when they're not at their day jobs. The empowering film shows how men still think they own women and how three of them decide to fight back. All three leads are fantastic (I especially loved Noémie Lvovsky) as is the deft and swift direction (but never at the expense of the character nuances) and smart script. This film deserves recognition.
