The Women and The Women behind "The Women"

There is a great new movie coming out Sept. 12. That I can't wait to see. The movie is The Women. This movie has many great actresses that on their own would be great in any movie but here they are all together in one. It has taken 13 years to get this movie made. The issue the director was having was that it is a cast of only women. People (Hollywood people) didn't think the movie could be made.

A bit about the movie:
The Women is a fast-paced, witty and emotional look at all things female, including loyalties, betrayals, careers, families and most of all, friendships. A remake of the 1939 classic film, The Women features an all-female cast of distinguished actresses, including Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith, Cloris Leachman, Bette Midler and Candice Bergen.

I'll be seeing it soon and I'll let you all know what I thought about it.

Until then, there is a great behind the scenes mini documentary that you can watch. It's a movie called The Women behind "The Women".

Dove (that wonderful beauty company) has teamed up with the film director Diane English to create the mini doc which follows 16-year-old teen journalist Cammy Nelson behind-the-scenes of The Women to learn, first-hand, how Hollywood creates the images we see on screen, highlighting the work and people involved in making a major motion picture come to life.

The documentary was wonderful. Not only are the lead actors female but the crew on the film also consisted of many females in the major roles. Directors, camera workers, set directors, producers, make-up/hair and many other positions were all women.

To learn a bit more about the movie, the director, the dove campaign for real beauty, and the mini documentary.
