Female Movie Performances That Inspired Me

'Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today, it was still worth it.'- Gia Carangi
Angelina Jolie Gia
Nothing inspires me more than a chill-inducing on-screen performance by a woman. Someone with boobs, a vagina, pouty colourful lips, wide eyes and a humble confidence to portray a sort of performance that lingers around you for years. I watch a lot of movies. Most are meh. There are also a handful where men dominate and rightly so- the role was made for them to conquer. But then there are those rare and unique characters which are left for women to slay. And oh my gosh- do they do it well! I was late to the game seeing Angelina Jolie in Gia. Being an angsty person, I was flabbergasted at her ability to not only capture supermodel Gia Carangi but facets of every women downcast in a complex society. Also, Reese Witherspoon in Wild.....omg. As someone who has been discovering adventures in my mid-twenties I salute her for bringing forth such grit when it came to portraying the true story of a woman hiking the Pacific Coast Trail to discover herself. I mean, it makes me want to hike it!
