Miss Representation (2011)

A documentary covering a subject dear to my heart. I have spent the past few years de-programming my daughter of the image of women portrayed by the media. Thankfully she's grown into a strong, independent and clever kid who knows that she can be who or what she wants to be - a fire-fighter or police officer at the moment.

It does have its faults though. Far too many talking heads, and subjects are covered at a whirlwind pace. Overall though an interesting, educational film that all young women and men need to watch; I know I'll stick it on Ellie's watch list.
