We can all agree that Anne Hathaway is a gifted actress and a delight to watch on screen, but apparently many of you hate her off-screen persona -- an issue that calls to mind similar, recent complaints about Beyonce in her HBO documentary. And an issue that I don't agree with.

With Lucasfilm and Disney making a standalone 'Star Wars' film focusing on the adventures of young Han Solo, we started thinking about the young actors that could possibly fill those shoes, and only one name made sense: Jennifer Lawrence. Too bad she's a woman.
Austin Chick's 'Girls Against Boys' is yet another in a long line of rape/revenge thrillers, this time dressed down for listless millennials, but rather than turn in a thoughtful essay, it looks like Chick just copied from his classmates in Feminism 101.
'Don Jon's Addiction,' the directorial debut from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, explores the ways in which rom-coms and porn might both be creating unreasonable expectations for women and men alike -- but neither form of media is mutually gender exclusive and both can be damaging, if we allow it.

You don't have to throw an internet-rock to hit a most-anticipated movies of 2013 list, but what about the female-centric films that we cover here on Reel Women? We've got a list of what we're looking forward to in the new year.
You know those movies where you relate so much to the characters and their emotional garbage that you almost want to dislike it for being so earnest? 'Save the Date' might be that film for you.

In its first 15 minutes or so, 'King Kelly' appears to be a grating portrait of an obnoxious cam girl, but stick with it long enough and you'll find an indictment of our current generation and the way modern young women are shaped by the social media that has raised them.
The new documentary 'Sexy Baby' tracks the lives of three different women and the way that our hyper-sexual media and culture has shaped, or is shaping, their lives. The film explores the digestive nature of media and what it is we leave behind to teach emerging generations of young women.
