The Best Movies Directed by Women in 2019 So Far
Last year gave us the gift of tons of excellent women-directed films, and even though 2019 has so far mostly failed to make a dent in the public consciousness with memorable blockbusters, female filmmakers have still been delivering diverse and entertaining stories on screens both big and small. While several festival favorites like The Farewell, The Nightingale, Hala, The Lodge, Clemency, and Honey Boy gained buzz early in the year, they've yet to be released to general audiences. We're excited to see what the latter half of the year brings, but in the meantime, there's plenty to celebrate, from the highest-grossing woman-directed film of all time to the first-ever LGBT Kenyan film.
