10. DVD: Won’t Back Down on Blu-ray and DVD
Some months a film like Won’t Back Down is as close to a lesbian film as you get: In it, Maggie Gyllenhaal is a single mom who thinks her daughter’s elementary school sucks. Viola Davis, a concerned teacher who wants her own son to have a good education, agrees. So they team up to improve the school and the attitudes of the people teaching there. It’s a movie, like a feminist Stand and Deliver, about feisty and embattled women who persevere through activism and, often, sheer willpower. Plus, Rosie Perez and Holly Hunter costar. Avaliable on Amazon.
