Format: DVD
The line up was promising; Julia Roberts, Kirstin Dunst, Maggie Gylenhaal and Julia Stiles. This film delivered. It's feministic approach was refreshing to see, and delivered in the form of Julia Roberts character, who incidentally was not a man-hating feminist, showed that the movement was not a way of women attempting to rise up against the oppressive and hateful men that ruled their lives, but a motion towards some kind of respect and equality. Roberts' character dated, loved, and worked hard for all she wanted. She motivated the girls to make a life for themselves that existed beyond the boundries of masculine expectation, so they would not regret letting the oppertunities pass them by.
Kirstin Dunst impressed me immensley in this film. I remember her saying in an interview a while ago, she'd like her acting to be taken more seriously and that she's sick of being the love interest or the girl next door... well, to me, all you need to do is look at her in Mona Lisa Smile and you can clearly see that this girl is headed for something major. She was spectacular, and the part suited her to a T. I wouldn't really have picked her out before watching this film, but if I see her in a serious role again, it will compell me to watch it.
Similarly, Maggie stood out as more than Jake's sister. She was, perhaps, the second most outstanding actress in the movie, besides Kirstin.
This film opened my eyes. In a way, it also showed me that you can't change people who've held beliefs in their minds for their entire lives to a, perhaps, more positive opinion, unless you're prepared to really fight. Or maybe the film shows that people should give advice, but allow others to make their own unaided decissions? Either way, it's a film worth watching, and I loved every minute.

Format: DVD
Julia Roberts is giving an outstanding performance in what can be called a social drama film. The messages passed to the audience are about the life of the women in the 1950s when their goal in life was to finish college and get married to financially healthy men. Katherine Watson uses the course she teaches to broaden the girls' horrizons and let's them understand that marriage is not something that they should chase. Instead they should go after the learning and should also leave their minds open for new ideas.
Mrs Watson is the common example of a lady that can see a step further than the people around her, in a community that is sticking to its strict academic background.
Magnificent film

Format: DVD
My daughter, who had seen this film and loved it, suggested that we watch it together. I agreed and was very glad I did so, as I really enjoyed this bittersweet film. It is a well-acted, well-directed effort about a free-thinking art history professor, Katherine Watson (Julia Roberts), who in the nineteen fifties, lacking Ivy League credentials, manages, through a twist of fate, to get a berth as a professor at traditional and conservative Wellesley College. It is here that she hopes to find herself instructing the leaders of tomorrow.
What she finds, instead, is a group of highly intelligent, young women, who are more interested in marrying the leaders of tomorrow than in being leaders themselves. Ms. Watson succeeds in opening the minds of her students to the possibilities and choices life can offer and learns a little about such possibilities and choices herself. She also finds friendship and romance while at Wellesley. The film also focuses on four of her students, all of whom are given stellar portrayals by the young actresses playing them.
Elizabeth "Betty" Warren (Kirsten Dunst) is the quintessential fifties girl, obsessed with getting her Mrs. before getting her BA. She later discovers that one should be careful for what one wishes. She is also a nasty piece of work who doesn't care what misery for others her poison pen invectives and barbed comments cause. She eventually gets her comeuppance in a way that she never envisioned. Her best friend, Joan Brandwyn (Julia Styles), is a beautiful, highly intelligent, young woman who harbors a secret wish to become a lawyer. Yet, at the same time, she desperately wants to become a wife and mother. Hers is a decision between choices. She ultimately makes a choice that causes Ms. Watson some consternation but with which she is happy.

I didn't expect to enjoy this film as it was my girlfriend's choice. I found it pleasantly entertaining, however, and Julia Roberts was her usual impressive self. It's not going to have you on the edge of your seat or reaching for the tissues but allows time to meander along with a couple of glasses of wine at hand.

I've read mixed reviews about this film. However I would definately recommend it, WE thoroughly enjoyed it (proving its not a girls film either!) The characters are so true to life and its the kind of film that really makes you realise life is about being true to yourself.
I hope you rent or buy it and enjoy it as much as we did.

Format: DVD
The best to summarise the film would be to call it "The feminist Dead Poets' Society". The storylines are very similar. The campus environment of a girls' college is suddenly changed by an arts teacher who preaches her students to get a life. Not the life that is planned for them --mother and housewife. For me the film beautifully creates the same atmosphere arranged by schoolmasters, orthodox teachers, busybody parents in 1950'a America. The role of the woman in those days' society was diminished only to certain jobs and areas. This unequality is shockingly revealed through out the film. In the final scenes of the film the teacher shows slides to her students. In the slides are wonderful and happy women doing housework, cooking, cleaning, ironing. Not the life a learned woman wants, or is it?
