Tuesday Couch Potatoes : Girl Power

My pick for today's theme GIRL POWER is Mona Lisa Smile!

This movie starred Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles... It is an interesting movie to watch... as it challenges the norms and what people are used to.

Here is a summary taken from
Katherine Ann Watson has accepted a position teaching art history at the prestigious Wellesley College. Watson is a very modern woman, particularly for the 1950s, and has a passion not only for art but for her students. For the most part, the students all seem to be biding their time, waiting to find the right man to marry. The students are all very bright and Watson feels they are not reaching their potential. Altough a strong bond is formed between teacher and student, Watson's views are incompatible with the dominant culture of the college.

i enjoyed watching mona lisa smile too. if i were a teacher at that time, i would also be frustrated to see my students just marry when they have so much potential for many other things. but i guess there is not much she can do about it for the norms in the 50s were far too strong and influential.

nice pick chris. thanks for joining us this week. next week, we will feature courtroom drama movies. till then, take care and happy tcp!
