I am a big fan of Iconic Rosie the Riveter. I see the women who inspire me and I see “Rosie the Riveter” in each one of them. These Iconic females have proved the slogan, we can do it. They really did it. And not only did they become idols of many and immortals in the pages of history, great movies have been made on their true story and some of them are so inspiring that we watch it over and over again. This is the list of 5 finest movies (reels) based on real inspiring stories of women.
Real to Reel : 9 inspiring women
The Iron Lady
Meryl Streep doesn’t fail to Portray brilliantly the character of Margaret Thatcher, on whom this movie is based. Margaret Thatcher was the first woman to become the prime minister of Great Britain. In this movie, nostalgic Margaret, who now is old and dementia stricken reflects back on her life and remembers her past from young to old age. We can see how she struggled in the male dominated world of politics and what she sacrificed on her way to success. One of my favorite scenes from the movie is when she learns to correct her pitch and speak efficiently. Meryl Streep bagged Oscars for the Iron Lady.
Erin Brockovich is based on a true story of an American woman with the same name. What’s the real life Erin has achieved is that, she filed a lawsuit against a company which was responsible for contamination of water by chromium. Which further caused serious health issues like cancer in people of that area. The notable thing about Erin was that she had no experience or proper education in Law and yet she fought and won against the wrong & powerful.
Zero Dark Thirty
When it comes to bravery and Patriotism, women are no less than a man. Zero Dark Thirty is based on an operation involving the CIA in tracking down Osama Bin Laden. During this operation, a fictional woman named Maya, who played CIA intelligence analyst an important role in the success of the operation. This movie created a lot of controversy and Lindsay Moran, the real life Maya (I would like to believe that) left CIA in 2003. She now is a freelance writer and is an author of a book, Blowing my cover.
Queen Elizabeth was a survivor. Against all odds, she achieved perfection in being a Ruler. Her Journey to being a Monarch was not an easy one and hence, a movie based on the true life of the queen who reigned during the golden age, is a must watch for each and every woman.
Wow! I watched this movie a few days back. Hidden figures is a movie about three extraordinarily brilliant black women and their outstanding contribution at NASA during the launch of astronaut, John Glenn into orbit. And you gotta, oughta watch it, please….
Other Remarkable inspiring movies that I like and you could watch are:
La vie en Rose.
The young Victoria.
I hope you enjoy watching these movies and get energized. Happy women’s day to all women out there. We, are wonderful and yes, we can do it.
I am woman, hear me roar…
Love Month is here. Yay! whether you are single or taken, a good romantic movie is something we all enjoy watching at some point of our lives. This month is like a holy month for worshippers of Love and eight days from today, is their biggest festival of the year. well, means of entertainment will play a very important role, as we all know during this time of celebration and so I have here list of 9 unhyped movies for hopelessly Romantic. Unlike the most popular Love Story movies like The Notebook, Titanic, A walk to Remember, Casablanca, Shakespeare in Love, P.S I Love you, Fault in our stars, Gone with the wind etc. which are on the tip of the tongue of most Romantic, these movies are lesser popularized.
9 unhyped Movies for Hopelessly Romantic
Before Sunrise is one of my favourites. It is a story of two strangers (Ethan and Celine) who meet on a train, start having an interesting conversation and the leave the train in between to explore Vienna together. They spend an entire day and then night while walking through the streets of Vienna, visiting different sites while talking and getting to know each other. And of course they are attracted to each other and the movie will leave you spellbound. I recommend you watch it, friends. Before Sunrise was followed by two sequels. I am yet to watch them.

Thomas Hardy has quoted that, There is a condition worse than blindness. And that is seeing something that isn’t there.” Beautiful Mind is a movie based on a true story about a life of a man named John Nash and his battle with a cruel disorder, schizophrenia. This movie is not a love story movie but if you watch the movie or have watched it, you would know why this movie is listed here. John Nash was a very Lucky man as far as Love goes as god had gifted him the most caring, supportive, brave and Loving Companion. Her miraculous Love could make John Nash win the his battle.

So as I talked earlier about how John Nash was lucky in love, this movie has the similar case. It is a story of a Mathilde, an engaged girl who sets out to find her fiancée who is considered to be killed in a battle. And she finally finds him, amnesia stricken in the end. source : Here.

Ever thought of a love which could possibly start with sending a Lunchbox to a wrong address? well, this is what happens in the movie and it is a must watch. Image source : here
Message In Bottle
Based on the book by author of The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks, Message in a bottle may not be as astounding as other movies listed above but I like this movie. Movie is about a woman who gets a message in a bottle washed ashore and then tracks down the man. Next follows Love, misunderstanding and Loss. But what remains after the movie ends is the emotional outbursts and may be tears (If you are like me). Image source : Here
Thank you friends and wish you a beautiful sunday. Much Loves,
