Mrs. Miniver's Girls: Plucky Girls in "Hidden Figures," "The Zookeeper's Wife," "Their Finest," and "Colossal"
Beck, Bernard
Multicultural Perspectives, v19 n4 p223-226 2017
Four recent movies, "Hidden Figures," "The Zookeeper's Wife," "Their Finest," and "Colossal" exemplify a new cultural version of the movie heroine. This version combines feminism with commitment to solving an overwhelming problem. These heroines, thus, display the character virtues of Wonder Woman and Mrs. Miniver. This new version reflects changing concerns about the cultural understanding of women and a new direction for women moviemakers.
