Female Filmmaker Friday: A League of Their Own, 1992 (dir. Penny Marshall)
I can’t even remember the first time I saw this film, but I know I was very young. I’m not a big baseball fan. I never have been. But I love this film. I love what it represents and I love this history that is showcases. I love the characters and I love the costume design and I love the story and basically, I just love this movie.

Last week I covered Susan Seidleman’s debut film Smithereens and now I will be discussing her second film, the mainstream hit Desperately Seeking Susan. Check back over the next few weeks as I look at three more of her films from the 1980s.
Lady Directors, Aidan Quinn and Oscar Contenders: January 2014 in Films
Forgive me for posting this a day late. Somehow I totally forgot it was February until I realized today is Groundhog Day and I still haven’t watched Groundhog Day. Needless to say, I will be watching Groundhog Day soon. This month’s round up will be pretty brief. I’ve been trying to watch more movies directed by ladies and I’ve done a pretty stellar job of it (though I could be watching more!) and I’ve started a new feature called Female Filmmaker Friday that I hope you all enjoy. As always, after the cut you can read what I’ve been watching, as well as a few featured films.
