To help people with their 52 Films By Women challenge this year I thought I’d put together a list of some of my favorite films directed by women that are easily accessible on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Keep in mind that this is in no way all of the films directed by women available on these services, but rather a selection of films I have seen and enjoy. There are also many more films available to rent on Amazon Video as well. Think of this as a jumping off point! Also if you have not taken the 52 Films By Women pledge yet you can do so here.

Laurel: You know, everything is so great with us.
Basel: Come on, cool it with that. What do you think, if you show me how you feel, I’m not gonna like you?
Laurel: Yeah, maybe.
Basel: Really? This isn’t gonna last if it’s like that. If this is real, we gotta tell each other the bad stuff. And if this isn’t real, if this is just my kind of imagination then I wanna know now.
Laurel: I don’t know what I’m doing. I have never done this before. I don’t. . .I don’t even know what the real me looks like.
Basel: Well, I think I do.
Basel: Yes, I do. She’s funny and she’s weird and likes to play games and she makes me laugh. I think that’s the real you. I like her. That’s who I want. That’s what I want.
