Female centric films

With all the favorite movie lists being discussed here, thought I would turn this on its head and see if there are any gal pal films you made it through.

A League of Their Own
Thelma & Louise
Steel Magnolias
 
Lars von Trier's, Breaking the Waves, The Idiots, Dogville are pretty intense female centric.
Broken Mirrors (Dutch) edit; correction, not Broken Glass
Anything i've seen by Pedro Almodóvar i'd put in that box.
Rabbit Proof Fence
Kill Bill
Run Lola Run (Dutch)
Chocolat

Art films, for the most part not in English.

And i too enjoyed A League of Their Own and Thelma & Louise, but overall, little in the way of Hollywood viewing on my part, seat with my name on it at the rep theatre while it was here.

So many i've forgotten the names of.

I wouldn't call these movies woman-centric like they were made for women and they aren't necessarily "buddy films" but they feature strong women/girls as the central characters that carry the story. I really enjoyed and recommend them all.

Hayao Miyazaki's animated films came to mind immediately. Some of my favorites:
- Spirited Away
- Kiki's Delivery Service
- Howl's Moving Castle
- Princess Mononoke
- My Neighbor Totoro

Others:
- Bridesmaids
- The Heat (McCarthy/Bullock)
- Spy (McCarthy)
- The Turning Point (MacLaine/Bancroft)

Steel Magnolias and Terms of Endearment are two of my all-time favorites. I still watch those from time to time.

It's something of a guilty pleasure, but I still get a kick out of Mamma Mia! (not so much the sequel :nonod:)

It's not a film, but the HBO series, Big Little Lies, has been phenomenal.
