Getting ready for the weekend and need some good movies to watch? Not to worry, Streamer is here with “Empowered Women” movies that are a must watch. If you love actress, Jessica Chastain, you will love this list. If you’ve seen these movies, well just watch them again especially the first one on my list. So here we go.
Based on true events relative to a prominent skier, Molly Bloom (played by Jessica Chastain), who ran a multi-million underground poker game for a decade until she was arrested by the FBI. I won’t say anymore because I won’t ruin this great movie for you but I’ll leave you with this: She’s a total bad ass.
2. Ms Sloane
Elizabeth Sloane (played by Jessica Chastain), is a successful political lobbyist in D.C. with somewhat loose morals and a huge desire to always win. She always playing Chess in her work and personal life; always steps ahead of everyone. When she is faced with a powerful opponent, she finds she may have to plunge into her own sword rather than pay the price to win.
Love, betrayal, assassination attempts and war incited by Spain all play a part in the story of Queen Elizabeth I of England, played by Cate Blanchett. This won an Oscar for costume design and Cate Blanchett gives a breath-taking performance. 100% Fresh!
4. Ocean’s 8
I always loved the Ocean’s franchise which originally started as an all men cast, such as, George Clooney and Brad Pitt. I was so glad that with this one they decided to do an all women cast, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina and Rihanna. Sandra Bullock plays a character named Debbie Ocean which is Danny’s sister and recruits a crew of women to plan and execute a very elegant NYC heist. You are in for laughs and fun in this installment of the Ocean franchise.
That’s all for this first installment of Streamer: Weekend Edition. I hope you enjoy these movies as much as I did.
