Episode 21: Lizzie and the Handmaiden

Lizzie and The Handmaiden are films about women whose love (or simply lust) for one another creates a powerful catalyst that dismantles patriarchal structures. In this episode of Chick Flicks, we think only one of these films has a queer love story that works. Lizzie was directed by Craig MacNeil and stars Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. The Handmaiden is based on the novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters and was directed by Park Chan-Wook. It stars ‎Kim Min-hee and ‎Kim Tae-ri.

This week Bridget is into Big Little Lies, The Terror, and The Souvenir. McKenzie recommends Good Omens, Flash Forward, and What Remains of Edith Finch.
