Film Quizzes: Female Directed Films Part 2

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?

Line(s) of the Day #AThousandYears

Christina Perri - A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colours and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow

The opening lines of A Thousand Years by American singer songwriter Christina Perri. Released in 2011, it was part of the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 film, where the tortured relationship within Bella Swan and Edward Cullen reaches its conclusion.
