30 Film Females: Skyfall (2012)

Filed under: 30 Film Females — ootastic @ 12:50 pm

It’s to the credit of Judi Dench that it’s difficult to remember previous portrayals of the M in the James Bond films. In the week that the 24th Bond film is announced, I’d like to celebrate the Dench era with her swansong in Skyfall.  In addition to a ridiculously catchy and Oscar-winning theme song by Adele, the film touches on the more emotional and maternal aspects of M and Bond’s relationship: “Orphans make the best recruits.”

Yet again, this drawing was started in our weekly toddler group and finished off in front of the TV (the final episode of The Driver) after toddler bedtime. I think I might try buying more colours and moving away from such graphic black and white scribblings.

Honourable mentions for 2012: this was a bumper year for action heroines (Brave, Looper, Prometheus, etc.), but particular kudos should go to Jessica Chastain’s dogged CIA agent in Zero Dark Thirty (and also Kathryn Bigelow as the first woman to win best director Oscar).  Also, Jennifer Lawrence establishes her character Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games as *the* new feminist icon.
