15 Movies for Cinema Fanatic: A Year with Women
Nisreen Faour plays a Palestinian woman moving to the United States with her son to live with her sister (played by Hiam Abbass) for a brighter future in Palestinian-American director Cherien Dabis’ (pictured 4th with the headphones) film.
10. English Vinglish
It’s all about the English Vinglish!
Director Gauri Shinde wrote and directed this Sridevi starrer comeback role in honor of her mom, and despite some cringe-worthy multicultural clash (that I think might be intended), English Vinglish manages to entertain and warm the depths of your stone-cold heart.
It’s the quintessential movie for all of us with English as a second language!
19. Rent-A-Cat (レンタネコ, RENTANEKO)
FYI, I had also considered adding directors Mika Ninagawa (Sakuran, さくらん), Miwa Nishikawa (Sway), Nami Iguchi (Don’t Laugh at my Romance, 人のセックスを笑うな)… and specially Yuki Tanada with One Million Yen Girl (百万円と苦虫女). But alas~
Naoko Ogigami it is and Rent-A-Cat it is because Marya would love to watch this with Mr. Rochester.
This is, after all, a list for Marya ;)
