I am a big fan of Iconic Rosie the Riveter. I see the women who inspire me and I see “Rosie the Riveter” in each one of them. These Iconic females have proved the slogan, we can do it. They really did it. And not only did they become idols of many and immortals in the pages of history, great movies have been made on their true story and some of them are so inspiring that we watch it over and over again. This is the list of 5 finest movies (reels) based on real inspiring stories of women.
Real to Reel : 9 inspiring women
The Iron Lady
Meryl Streep doesn’t fail to Portray brilliantly the character of Margaret Thatcher, on whom this movie is based. Margaret Thatcher was the first woman to become the prime minister of Great Britain. In this movie, nostalgic Margaret, who now is old and dementia-stricken reflects back on her life and remembers her past from young to old age. We can see how she struggled in the male-dominated world of politics and what she sacrificed on her way to success. One of my favorite scenes from the movie is when she learns to correct her pitch and speak efficiently. Meryl Streep bagged Oscars for the Iron Lady.
Erin Brockovich is based on a true story of an American woman with the same name. What’s the real-life Erin has achieved is that she filed a lawsuit against a company which was responsible for contamination of water by chromium. Which further caused serious health issues like cancer in people of that area. The notable thing about Erin was that she had no experience or proper education in Law and yet she fought and won against the wrong & powerful.
Zero Dark Thirty
When it comes to bravery and Patriotism, women are no less than a man. Zero Dark Thirty is based on an operation involving the CIA in tracking down Osama Bin Laden. During this operation, a fictional woman named Maya, who played CIA intelligence analyst an important role in the success of the operation. This movie created a lot of controversies and Lindsay Moran, the real-life Maya (I would like to believe that) left CIA in 2003. She now is a freelance writer and is an author of a book, Blowing my cover.
Queen Elizabeth was a survivor. Against all odds, she achieved perfection in being a Ruler. Her Journey to being a Monarch was not an easy one and hence, a movie based on the true life of the queen who reigned during the golden age, is a must watch for each and every woman.
Wow! I watched this movie a few days back. Hidden Figures is a movie about three extraordinarily brilliant black women and their outstanding contribution at NASA during the launch of an astronaut, John Glenn into orbit. And you gotta, oughta watch it, please….
Other Remarkable inspiring movies that I like and you could watch are:
La Vie en Rose.
The young Victoria.
I hope you enjoy watching these movies and get energized. Happy women’s day to all women out there. We are wonderful and yes, we can do it.
I am a woman, hear me roar…
