It’s all about the ladies this week. There are so many great, strong, bitchin’, cool, awesome, kick-ass, perfect and funny female movie characters. Here are my five favorites.
5. Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin in “Little Miss Sunshine”)
Olive is the sweetest little girl you can imagine. She's always happy, enthusiastic and kind. She wants nothing more then to attend the Little Miss Sunshine competition. And she really doesn't care about what other people think of her. All the other children in the contest are supposed to look perfect, but Olive is the only true beauty in the pageant.
4. Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone in “Easy A”)
Olive is witty, intelligent, she has a great sense of humor and she is very kind. Olive is one of the best characters ever written for film and I adore her. Everything about her.
3. Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tatou in “Amélie”)
Amelie is a whimsical do-gooder whose benign interference helps out friends and neighbours, but who then has to help herself when she falls in love with a stranger. I love Amelie’s nice gestures.
2. Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley in “Pride & Prejudice”)
Elizabeth is an intelligent young woman, with a lively, playful disposition, which delighted in anything ridiculous. Her mother wants only one thing: for her to get married, preferably to a rich man. Elizabeth can only marry a man because of love.
1. The Bride (Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill: Vol. 1+2”)
The Bride, aka Beatrix Kiddo, is a formidable, ruthless warrior who used to serve at the right hand of Bill. She is a strong willed woman and literally kick-ass.
They almost made the top 5: Shosanna Dreyfuss (Mélanie Laurent in “Inglourious Bastards”), Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormans in “Fargo”), Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson in “Lost in Translation”), Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts in “King Kong”)
