This list is a far from complete list of some of my favorites - they are warriors, scholars, mothers, daughters; they can be wildly in love and impressively practical; they are a little too perfect and incredibly flawed. Most of them have happy endings, some of them don't. In an nutshell - these are girls who act like girls should and must.
The Other Boleyn Girl, directed by Justin Chadwick. I had read this book a couple of years before the film came out, so I knew what to expect. I did like the casting for the Boleyn sisters and the sets and costumes were gorgeous.
