The clear takeaway from the Sundance study was that women fared much better in documentary, and particularly when examining their representation at a prestigious film festival like Sundance. And I think anecdotally that’s true, but we also need to focus on what it means to be better than horrible. Because the statistics about women in film are just that – horrible.
This is a pretty terrible trailer, but Mostly Martha is my favorite food movie. I love that Martha is an amazing cook who gets energy from cooking for others and loses her appetite when alone. It’s hard to watch this one on an empty stomach.
A friend and I were talking about movies where the food is one of the best parts, and I think Eat Drink Man Woman certainly fits under that. Don’t judge the Ang Lee drama by this cheesy trailer, though, please.
