50 Iconic Onscreen Female Friendships
Dating back to the early years of the film industry, female friendships made their way into some of the industry's top films, from comedies to dramas. Using IMDb ratings from July 2019, Stacker looked at 50 iconic female friendships depicted on celluloid. From a 1939 film based on a play by American writer and politician Clare Boothe Luce, in which there are no men in the entire ensemble cast, to a 2010 film by acclaimed feminist writer, director, and actress Lena Dunham, in which the stark realities of money and ambition in contemporary New York foil even the closest of friendships, each of these 50 friendships illuminates something nuanced and new about female friendships.
