You might be surprised at how difficult it is to find movies directed by women. It’s become important to me to support women in getting their stuff out there, thereby increasing demand for art produced by women. So here’s a list of some of the best movies directed by women on Netflix in no particular order.
- Hannah Arendt directed by Margarethe von Trotta
- The Girl in the Book directed by Marya Cohn
- Adore directed by Anne Fontaine
- Angels Crest directed by Gaby Dellal
- Mosquita y Mari directed by Aurora Guerrero
- When Billie Beat Bobby directed by Jane Anderson
- Vessel directed by Diana Whitten
- The Dark Matter of Love directed by Sarah McCarthy
- A Path Appears directed by Maro Chermayeff
- India’s Daughter directed by Leslee Udwin
- A Woman Like Me directed by Elizabeth Giamatti
- Water directed by Deepa Mehta
- The New Black directed by Yoruba Richen
- We Need to Talk About Kevin directed by Lynne Ramsay
- Pariah directed by Dee Rees
It was pretty painstaking putting this list together and I will add to it as I find more movies.
P.S. If any of the links are incorrect, please let me know and I’ll fix them. Happy watching!
