Me Jane: Masculinity, Movies, and Women

Front Cover
Pat Kirkham, Janet Thumin
Lawrence & Wishart, 1995 - Feminism and motion pictures - 296 pages
This study gets to grips with issues of gender and identity on the big screen. These essays vary widely in scope: some offer detailed discussion of one film, some take an individual star as the focus, and some deal more broadly with over-arching questions of genre and spectatorship. All, however, deliver a combination of informed scholarship and specific moments in which the interaction between image and audience is explored.
