Evie Totty: “It ruled.”
This review contains spoilers. Reveal it.
A film written by Amy Poehler about a girl in high school who is sick of the shenanigans the popular boys get away with.
I know it's been forever since I was in high school, but damn. The stuff that apparently goes on these days is shocking. The first day of school, a message goes around (how the hell do I keep seeing movies that sends messages out to the entire student body, is this really a thing?) with a 'Best' list. And they are about the girls. Think of various ways a female can be objectified, and there's a list entry for it.
And when a female student complained to the principal (a woman) about her entry (not flattering at all), she dismisses it. A couple other times the principal was approached about something, she also dismisses it.
So Vivian (Amy's character's daughter) finds or has an old memories case of her mom's. And it has a lot of 'rebel girl' kind of stuff in it.
And it inspires her to start a movement at school. She creates 'Moxie', a newsletter with statements about feminism, the boys who were bullying and whatnot. It galvanized the girls. Mistakes were made, but overall, it was a good thing.This review contains spoilers. Reveal it.
