At her first class, Katherine discovers that her students have already memorized the entire textbook and syllabus, so she uses the classes to introduce them to Modern Art and encourages discussion about topics such as what makes good art. Katherine comes to know her students and seeks to inspire them to achieve more than marriage to eligible young men. Betty Warren Kirsten Dunst is highly opinionated and outspokenly conservative.
What can you expect from it? But with women instead? Well, I had that feeling indeed. But overall, it was still different.
But it was displayed very well. It also shows the way a good teacher cares for their students and so forth Did that sentence sound weird or what? They played great in the movie. Julia Roberts is just great at playing these emotional roles.
It was believable as well. I at least could feel the frustration which she had.
Her character is more of a confused type. She reminded me of Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds There was basically a mixture of confusion and dedication I thought Julia Roberts did a great job in that area.
Kirsten was just excellent. You could feel the internal turmoil going through her throughout the movie. One might argue that she had a pretty wack role and that she overacted etc.
The same goes for Julia and Maggie. Just the way they were depicted in the movie, you really felt for them.
Even today, they still fight to gain respect in many areas in the world today. And funnily enough, most of them come from guys The movie tackling the issue of feminism only touches upon a small part of it all of course. One cannot tackle the whole aspect of feminism in any one single movie at all, and I found the focus to be good enough.
There are many stereotypes here and I found them necessary to get the points across. If it were not for the stereotypes, people would be wondering what the point really was.
But now that there are stereotypes, people will complain about them. I thought that it was a bit too short. It could have focused a bit more on the other characters in the movie A few more subplots and build ups may have been better.
But what overcame this, from my point of view, was that you just felt that you wanted to get to know the characters in the movie more.
The more you knew about each character, the more the characters knew about one another. I thought that was quite nice. I would advise everyone with an open mind for dramas to go watch this movie.
