She Found it at the Movies
She Found It At The Movies is a collection of essays by female and non-binary writers confessing and discussing desire through the prisim of movie fandom. Edited by Christina Newland, it was released in 2020. My essay ‘From Female Subservience to Eating Men Alive’ is a deeply personal account of relating to both the horny cannibal in Claire Denis’s Trouble Every Day and the fembots in Bryan Forbes’ films adaptation of Ira Levin’s book The Stepford Wives. Acclaimed filmmaker Mark Cousins took me aside after a screening to tell me that it was going to touch people. I hope it has.
