Support Women in Film: 2010 films by female directors

Of all the films released in 2010, I found merely 14 directed by women:

The Kids Are All Right—Lisa Chodolenko
–smart film about family, relationships and when challenges threaten the status quo

Please Give—Nicole Holofcener
–darkly amusing film about a jaded New York couple and the two sisters that live in their building, who affect them more than expected

Somewhere—Sofia Coppola
–a spoiled film star gets real with an undeniably sweet, gentle relationship with his tween daughter

Country Strong—Shana Feste
–the challenges of staying young and relevant in the music industry without letting the pressures steal your individuality

The Extra Man—Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini

Going the Distance – Nanette Burstein
–cute rom-com about a long distance relationship w/ Drew Barrymore and Justin Long

The Greatest—Shana Feste

Just Wright—Sanaa Hamri
–Queen Latifah plays a physical therapist who gets her dream assignment: personal rehab to one of the New York Knicks. It’s funny and touching.

Nanny McPhee Returns—Susanna White

Ramona and Beezus— Elizabeth Allen

The Runaways— Floria Sigismondi
–pretty tame biopic of the all-girl punk rock band The Runaways with Joan Jett and Cherie Currie

The Tempest—Julie Taymor

Winter’s Bone— Debra Granik
–gritty, harrowing, suspenseful and one of the best films of 2010
