Passing the Bechdel Test in 2013

My last thought before 2013 disappears.

(And then, FYI, 2014 will pick up riiiight where this leaves off.)

A very interesting post on the Tribeca Film site about 10 Bechdel Test-passing films from 2013. There’s a very interesting bit in there that you’re sure to be very interested in. Go and take a look at it. I’ll wait.

Did you see it? I’d bet you did. Just about 70% of those films had women involved in their writing and/or directing. Women, it seems, are keenly interested in having reflective, nuanced, smart, multi-faceted women on screen.

And, let us not forget, these were (mostly) great films. Let’s look forward to more of these in 2014.
