AT THE MOVIES #792 THE OSCARS EMBRACE DIVERSITY
Simon Morris looks at the winners and losers of the Academy Awards 2020, then reviews three movies, all with a decidedly female slant.
For Sama is a war documentary shot and co-directed by a woman – Syrian film-maker Waad al-Kateab.
Birds of prey: The fantabulous emancipation of one Harley Quinn is a mostly all-women comic-book movie with Margot Robbie both producing and starring in the tale of the Joker’s ex.
And La Belle Epoque – a Film Festival favourite, starring Daniel Auteuil and Fanny Ardant.
