Me Jane: Masculinity, Movies and Women Summary
This study gets to grips with issues of gender and identity on the big screen. These essays vary widely in scope: some offer detailed discussion of one film, some take an individual star as the focus, and some deal more broadly with over-arching questions of genre and spectatorship. All, however, deliver a combination of informed scholarship and specific moments in which the interaction between image and audience is explored. Following the companion volume - "You Tarzan" - in which men looked at masculinity on the big screen, this book gives women their say. Contributors include Griselda Pollock on "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan", Susannah Radstone on Al Pacino's sex, Lola Young on "The Crying Game" and Rikki Morgan on Pedro Almodovar. Pat Kirkham is the author of "Charles and Ray Eames: Designers of the 20th Century". Janet Thumim is the author of "Celluloid Sisters: Women in Popular Cinema".
