Day Twenty-Four: Favorite female romantic relationship
I’m totally blanking on the character names, but I like the portrayal in this film of the relationship between Antonia’s daughter and the teacher.
Antonia’s Line, 1995. So I feel somewhat idiotic - all this time I thought this movie was about a fashion designer (her line, get it?). Anyway, I happened to find it tonight on Netflix Instant and I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen such strong, honest portrayals of female characters in a movie. It’s like this movie is feminist just by showing the lives of women. And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg … there are many deep themes (incest, mental health, sexuality, gender roles, motherhood, sibling rivalry, depression, etc.) tossed into this movie about Antonia and her descendants. For a movie with what seems like a simple plot, it really packs a punch. Wow.
