The ending of the movie is quite extraordinary and leaves the audience in tears. Iron Lady is not just a movie but it’s the life of a strong independent woman who, with immense determination and hard work found herself a remarkable place in the world history.

Unlike other movies where the princess is awakened by the kiss of a young charming prince, this movie highlights the love between sisters and shows that one need not search for true love, it already exists around us in the form of parents and siblings.

12 Years a Slave

This film is an adaptation of 1853 slave narrative memoir, Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup. The film is about a free African-American Solomon Northup being kidnapped and sold to a plantation worker as a slave. During his years as a slave, he comes across cruel, callous people who suck the blood of the slaves working under them.

He meets Patsy, a Young woman slave who is repeatedly raped and abused by the plantation worker (this part of the film gives a glimpse of the lives of women slaves at that time). After 12 years he goes free with the help of a friend and returns home to be comforted by his family. Often times we run after the life and forget to appreciate all that we have. This movie is an eye-opener to not just women, but to everybody to appreciate what we possess (like freedom) thus making it a must watch.

The characters Catherine Earnshaw, Edgar Linton, and Heath cliff are beautifully portrayed by the actors Merle Oberon, David Niven and Lawrence Olivier. This movie shows that the line that divides love and hate, hate and revenge is very thin and the transformation of love to revenge can bring about drastic measures. Wuthering height is a movie that must be watched by every woman before 30 to understand the dark side of love.
