Grazie! Finalmente parole giuste ( le prime, vere, da uno scrive) per una persona giusta.
The early through line of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, to generalize, was: “white men being idiots, everyone else being eloquent and funny.” Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey set a tone of irreverent feminist fun.

This list will lean towards stuff from the BBC, Meryl Streep and Judi Dench, French films, movies with women on bikes, and Harvey Weinstein’s Oscar bait from the last 20 years. Your mom will love it. Add these to her queue!
