The action-packed thriller Hush tells about the deaf writer Madison Young (Kate Siegel), who becomes the target of persecution in her own home. To save herself, Maddie will have to fight with a maniac, using only her eyes, mind and quick wits.

Despite the tiny budget, the film boasts a well-thought-out female character, a fresh idea and excellent sapsens, which is a rarity in such a combination.

Meg Altman (Jodie Foster)

Panic Room (2002)

IMDb Rating: 6.8

The American thriller Panic Room at one time gave us one of the most stubborn and courageous female characters of the beginning of the two thousandth. After the divorce, Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and his daughter move to a large but old house. While viewing the mansion, Meg discovers that he is equipped with a “hidden” or “Panic Room” – a place where, in the event of a robbery, you can hide and wait for help.


Margaret Keane (Amy Adams)

Big Eyes (2014)

IMDb Rating: 7.1

The drama Big Eyes tells the true story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams). A woman who managed to find success thanks to her unusual style of drawing, as well as about her relationship with her husband, who appropriated most of their marriage for the authorship of her works.


Lena (Emma Watson)

Colony (2015)

IMDb Rating: 7.1

The historical drama Colony tells about the incredible act of the German girl Leni (Emma Watson), who entered a closed penal colony in order to find and save her beloved. A film based on real events.

Despite the rather negative reviews from critics, we consider the character Emmy Watson to be the strongest in this top. The heroine of Emma Watson, a girl with a clear mind and the so-called “quiet determination” amazes with her incredible stamina and endurance. We recommend to view.


Ri Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence)

Winter Bone (2010)

IMDb Rating: 7.2

The plot of the drama Winter’s Bone is centered around Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence). Seventeen-year-old girl from a dysfunctional family, in the care of which were the younger brother and sister.

This film, not counting the The Poker House, was the first major project for Lawrence, which, nevertheless, was warmly received by critics and received four nominations for an Oscar, including for Best Picture.


Claireece Precious Jones (Gabourey Sidibe)

Precious (2009)

IMDb Rating: 7.3

The drama Precious tells about Claireece Precious Jones (Gabourey Sidibe). A sixteen-year-old black girl who is obese and who has not developed a life at all. Claireece’s storyline will feed on getting an education, struggling with problems and letting completely unique people into her life.

Precious is an example of an incredibly complex drama, which is not worth watching for the sake of “relaxation”. The film raises a lot of heavy acute social themes, which one after another overtake the main character. Recommended for viewing.


 Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan)

Brooklyn (2015)

IMDb Rating: 7.5

The Brooklyn melodrama tells about the Irishwoman Elish Lacy (Saoirse Ronan), a girl from a small town who decided to try her luck in Brooklyn.

The film received many Oscar nominations, and critics noted the excellent game of Saoirse Ronan, whose heroine showed an extraordinary transformation from “family dependent” to “able to build her own happiness on her own.”


Édith Piaf (Marion Cotillard)

La Vie en rose (2007)

IMDb Rating: 7.6

La Vie en rose is hardly a “little-known” film. Nevertheless, one cannot call him “well-known” either. The drama about the life of the famous French singer Edith Piaf is popular only among admirers of talent Marion Cotillard, the actress who played the title role.

As a result, we have an Academy Award for Best Actress and an excellent film that reveals the power of one of the most talented singers in the mid-20th century.


Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan (Emma Stone) Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis),  Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer)

The Help (2011)

IMDb Rating: 8.1

Oscar-winning drama The Help is quite a popular film. Everyone praises the game of Emma Stone, noting that the journalist Eugenia Skeeter played by her is an example of a strong female character. Of course it is. But in the framework of the The Help, as it seems to us, there is more feasible. For example, maid Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis)  or maid Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer), the last for her role received an Oscar. After all, the fact is that the events of the film take place in the 60s and agreeing to tell their story, these women risked not only work and position in society, but also their own lives. What strength is needed for this – judge for yourself.
