*Actually six! I should probably have this corrected. Then again, I like to surprise people, so opening up this piece to find six blurbs staring back at them should come as a nice reveal.
Another note: Frankly, this could have gone to about ten. April, for whatever reason, is this year’s launching ground for a whole slew of movies directed by women: Little Woods, Fast Color, and Someone Great each come immediately to mind, and though I have not seen any of these three and thus can’t render opinion on them (hey, maybe that’s why I didn’t include them in the round-up!), I suggest seeking them out. If you want movies by women in theaters (or, I guess, on Netflix), then the best way to do that, as I always say, is to vote with your dollars. (This is especially urgent for Fast Color, which I did not know was coming out this month and which will probably only be in theaters for another minute or so, that is if it’s still in theaters at all.)
