Film Club Rule #835: If a woman can secure the Presidential nomination, we can have a woman direct a Marvel superhero movie — and win an Oscar for it.
Female directors create a small percentage of films being made in 2016. Over all the years and ceremonies, only four women have been nominated for a Best Director Oscar. Over and over again financially successful female directors are overlooked to head a film project. Jeff, Heather, and Rusty spend some time in this episode discussing the lack of females directing feature films and they each talk about their favorite women who direct movies. They spend time talking about the films of Allison Anders, Sofia Coppola, and Miranda July.
