As shown in my previous quiz, there have been some seriously talented females behind the camera in charge of all kinds of critical and commercial successes within the last few decades. One quiz just wasn’t going to be enough, so I’ve added an extra set. And that’s without including the most recent smashes of Lady Bird and Wonder Woman, and films co-directed by women, like Persepolis, Shrek and Frozen. How many of the 15 below will you get?

Tough quiz Derrick, don’t worry. I don’t see anyone get full marks.
12/15 – missed PoT, TVS and Monster.
Great job as always Alex!
BTW, Chocolat was in 2000 🙂
The original was in 1988. I had a very misleading picture. Changed it now. I wanted to show a non-Hollywood film in there.
Wow this was a tough one Alex. I only got #s 7, 12, 14 & 15. 😞
Don’t take it badly. It was a tough one. I just wanted to highlight the wide range of successful films directed by women over the decades.
I missed a lot of these. I need a snow day to catch up!
Sounds good. Make you see you build a snowman too ha. And stay away from The Snowman. Just abysmal from all accounts.
I got 11. A fine quiz Alex, there were some tough ones on there.
That’s an impressive score on a tough quiz. Which is your favourite of the ones you’ve seen? Am such a fan of Jessica Chastain. She’s awesome in Molly’s Game.
The Virgin Suicdes was a deeply haunting and fascinating movie. Sofia Coppola just brought that dreamlike haze and reflection to it.
Exactly it. I’d add when I saw it years back was amazed by Angelina Jolie too. And the great soundtrack.
My four correct answers only go to those I had seen but it was a fun filled and challenging quiz to participate in. I like that you have Chocolat listed here which is nkt a remake of the 2000, as their stories are different but I did enjoy both movies. A great idea on a post Alex.
Thanks Sonea. Always nice to see your comments. How nice you’ve seen both Chocolat stories. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned.
Nice tribute to women.
Thanks. It’s not been as popular as other posts, but it’s really something important to highlight. You might like this quiz too btw https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2017/05/20/film-quiz-inspirational-women/
Only a couple I’m sad to say, we women need to up our game in promotion and awareness. I was only saying in 8 grades of singing syllabus we were never asked to choose a song written by a female composer.
It really is changing. In front of the screen and behind too. You can really sense it.
I only got 5, Alex. Great post!
You’re always welcome. Got a lot of other posts to write up so will leave the quizzes for a bit.
12/15, I know for sure 6 of the directors. Nice work with the Prince of Tides, I only happen to know that one having seen that picture a lot in an old copy of my Movie magazine. Clever stuff too with Virgin Suicides. Something’s Gotta Give was right on the tip of my tongue but couldn’t get it. Always enjoy these.
This is one of the tougher quizzes I’ve done so that’s a great score. Knowing the directors is bonus points. The Virgin Suicides had a really great soundtrack too.
Some of these are easy, others are really challenging! To answer Chocolat (1988) correctly I think you almost need to have seen the film, as the actress isn’t a big name. 11/15 for me.
It was a tough one. No real iconic shots from that film. Wanted to highlight a non-English film. A really good score though. If you were interested, I’ve done plenty of other quizzes too, which cover all kinds of genres and themes.
Solid score as per usual Abbi 🙂
I did terribly – 9/15 (well, in my opinion – terribly lol). I love your quizzes so much. I wish you will do them more often 🙂
You set high standards 🙂 That’s very kind of you to say. Why not try this quiz I created a while back? https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/film-quizzes-life-from-other-planets/
5 – I need some education! 🙂
The point of the quiz was to educate 🙂 Now you know some more amazing films directed by women 🙂
I only got 3! Humiliation.
Dn’t feel bad. It was a tough quiz. It was meant more to highlight the achievements of women behind the camera.
