Female Characters

Source: Natalie Portman

I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically.  The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins.  That’s not feminist, that’s macho.  A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.
