Little Women (2017) - Series

Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 novel Little Women is a universal coming-of-age story so well-loved by generations worldwide, that it’s been made into multiple stage and screen adaptations. The 2017 BBC adaptation is a three-part miniseries that follows the lives of the March sisters—Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy—as they navigate the challenges and trials of journeying from childhood to adulthood.

Atomic Blonde (2017) - Movie

This action-packed thriller throws Charlize Theron into the heart of Cold War Berlin as Lorraine Broughton, a top MI6 agent known for her ruthlessness and skill. Tasked with investigating a fellow agent's murder and retrieving a critical list of double agents, Lorraine navigates a treacherous world dominated by men. Atomic Blonde is a high-octane adventure that portrays female strength and resilience. Here, Theron portrays a complex and powerful protagonist who proves she can more than hold her own in a brutal environment.

Run the World (2021) - Series

In Run the World, four ambitious and glamorous best friends in their 30s spend a life-altering summer in Harlem, New York, in pursuit of world domination. Or at least a version of it in their everyday lives. This vibrant American comedy series perfectly captures friendship and the growing pains of navigating love, careers, and self-discovery in the dynamic city that never sleeps.

Killing Eve (2018) - Series

In this captivating spy thriller, Sandra Oh stars as Eve, a brilliant MI6 investigator tasked to capturing Villanelle, an assassin played by Jodie Comer. As the ruthless cat-and-mouse progresses, the two women find themselves strangely drawn to each other. Eve and Villanelle form a complex and twisted bond over four seasons of psychological warfare, often blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. Killing Eve isn’t a typical spy narrative. It explores female power, obsession, and, like both women, soon finds out how we can be drawn to the darkness we mirror in others.
