Welcome to Femme on Film where host Ria Carrogan and a guest chat about films made for women, about women, by women… just awesome lady folk (and those who identify as awesome lady folk) content that has often been unfairly maligned, misunderstood by critics, and are often way ahead of their time and need a revisit. This is a place to discuss all of this, and more!

This episode, Ria and Jess discuss the 1999 film Drop Dead Gorgeous. They discuss representations of young women in beauty pageants, the difficulties of finding the right tone with satire and the absence of bras in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Please be warned, Ria and Jess talk about disordered eating and eating disorders in this episode.
