Today I want to share the list of my favorite female-lead movies with you. There are stories that so important to me. I like to watch some of these movies over and over again. And I hope you'll find something interesting to yourselves!


I didn't add the best movies of all time or very popular movies to the list, such as "Ameli" or "Pride and Prejudice".  These flicks are already considered a classic. I tried to recollect some modern movies and those which don't have a 100% rating, but there's something in them)


I think the list will be updated periodically.
 

Arrival

A great movie based on a novel. It's a really philosophical, calm and melancholic one, although with the aliens. But it's not the point of the movie))
