Did You Know?


Contrary to what is portrayed in the film, the real infiltrates did plan on starting the protest while the Miss World candidates were on stage. However, it was Bob Hope's misogynistic jokes that made them change their plans and start throwing their flour bombs at that very moment. See more »

This is a beautiful film with a few small teething problems
17 April 2020 | by Joe-Faulkner-0See all my reviews

Firstly I can't believe my eyes at the low review score. I watch (or try to) films from every Genre, depict every political and social narrative.

There is nothing to dislike here. It's not gender swapping shallow rehashes and trying to sell it with 4th wave feminism. It is a BRILLIANT and accessible film about a bunch of brave women. Now that isn't to imply we don't need a badass roster of women in our Marvel's and DC's but this is a story of real heroic women fighting against a seriously oppressive regime.

I thought that a few of the younger characters were going to be obnoxiously off-putting but for ONCE they aren't, for once despite a few slightly cringe moments near the start, they are real characters with the attitude to fight for change.

I think no matter what race you are, the colour of your skin or your gender you can take something away from this movie and see how we should all be continuing to fight against injustices from every angle.

9/10 is a very high mark. It didn't have a few hundred million pounds in CGI, hell the angles from many perspectives can seem confusing. However I disregard the notion that this is another "woke film". It is unironically woke.
