A Year With Women: February 2015 in Films


So it appears I only watched 21 new-to-me movies in February, but I did see at least one new release in theaters every weekend in February (one weekend I saw three!). I got behind because on Tuesday nights I’ve been watching Jane the Virgin and Agent Carter, but now that the latter has ended (at least for now), I should pick my pace back up. Also, a reminder that I am making an exception for the TCM Classic Film Festival, which is coming up in three weeks, and will be watching a handful of (very old) films that weekend that aren’t written or directed by women. When I set out the guidelines for this back in December, I mentioned I would do this because this will be my 5th year at TCMFF. But after TCMFF, it’s back to nothing but ladies, I promise! I would also like to point out that in the first two months of the year I watched nine 2015 releases. For comparison, by this time in 2014 I’d seen three and in 2013, 2012 and 2011, I hadn’t seen any! As always, all the movies I watched last month are listed after the cut, as well as a breakdown by decade and a few favorites.

Penny: I wish I’d met you a long time ago. When we were kids.
Dodge: It couldn’t have happened any other way. It had to happen now.
Penny: But it isn’t enough time.
Dodge: It never would have been.
Penny: I’m scared.
Dodge: I. . .am madly in love with you, Penny. You’re my favorite, favorite thing.
Penny: I thought that somehow we’d save each other.
Dodge: We did. Penny. I’m really glad I got to know you.
