    Beschreibung "This essay makes a close reading of two Hollywood films, Something’s Gotta Give (2003) and Laurel Canyon (2002), in which the heroine is a mother, who is also a creative artist, and who is rewarded for her efforts in both these spheres with a late-flowering renewal and affirmation of romantic love. These texts are critically analysed in relation to a selection of earlier films representing maternal sexuality and younger male lovers, and are interpreted as working in contrast to earlier films which vilify or punish the maternal heroine. I argue that as examples of feminist romance, SGG and LC offer revisions to the genre enabling simultaneous fulfilment in career, mothering and romantic love. In conclusion, I suggest that these instances of popular feminism indicate a need for additional research in popular representations of maternal sexuality." (Information des Anbieters)
