Where there was once tremendous gender disparity and leading roles were only meant and custom-made for men, women would support, and often be saved, but in recent years, there has been a trend of female actors taking center stage. The next three weeks are testament to this. The Free Press Journal handpicks five female actors especially for you.
1. Daisy Edgar-Jones
Where the Crawdads Sing is led by a Golden Globe award winner who is central to the movie’s plot. The following follows Daisy Edgar-Jones, who raises herself in the marshes of the deep South and becomes a suspect in the murder of a man who she was once involved with.
2. Tamannaah Bhatia
Babli Bouncer will showcase the challenges she faces along the way, while she is still in pursuit of finding a job and before she finally makes it big as a bouncer.
3. Nathalie Emmanuel
The Invitation is a supernatural horror film that stars Game of Thrones fame Nathalie Emmanuel in the lead role. An edge-of-the-seat entertainer, the film follows a young woman who, after her mother’s death, meets long-lost family members for the first time, only to discover the dark secrets they carry with them.
4. Viola Davis
The Woman King is a historical epic movie about the Agojie, an all-female warrior who protected the West African kingdom of Dahomey in the 19th century. To showcase the story to a larger audience, the movie had to cast women, and it rightly did so with the prodigious Academy, Primetime Emmy, and two-time Tony award winner Viola Davis, among others.
Soon to be in theatres, Salaam Venky stars the supremely talented Kajol and is helmed by actor turned director Revathy. The film showcases the tale of a praiseworthy mother who battled the most difficult circumstances.
