Review:

"With the contemporary 'woman’s film' routinely written off as the ultimate disreputable genre, this useful collection reminds us of what is to be gained by thoughtful feminist engagement with the form." ―Diane Negra, Professor of Film Studies and Screen Culture, University College Dublin

"Exploring pretty boys and lad flicks, girly films and femme fare, chicks with dicks―and concrete saws!―and much more, Feminism at the Movies samples a wide range of post-2000 films. The incisive analyses provided here expand the ways feminist optics are applied to contemporary media debates...a must-read!" ―Christine Holmlund, Arts and Sciences Excellence Professor of Cinema Studies and French, University of Tennessee

"Radner and Stringer's wonderful anthology offers a startling range of accomplished essays, spanning both broadly popular Hollywood fare (Miss Congeniality, The War of the Worlds) and independent art cinema (Juno, High Tension). The original essays in this vibrant new work both refer back to the foundations of film studies in 1980s feminism, and chart a path toward a new century of critical analysis." ―Walter Metz, Professor of Cinema and Photography, Southern Illinois University
