The amount of chick flicks, love filled dramas, and action movies out there are countless. It’s incredibly hard to find a good motivating movie portraying a female lead in a business role. If you ever need some inspiration to work harder, take the bull by the horns, or follow your dreams…check out these flicks.
Monday: Morning Glory – Rachel Mc Adams is everything. She plays a young, extremely hungry (and passionate) morning news producer. Her character’s perseverance is insane. Also, she’s only 28! This is a great movie to watch on a Monday when you need the motivation to take on the week.
Tuesday: The Intern – Anne Hathaway plays the CEO of an online fashion retailer (and breadwinner to her family). The film portrays the very real situation working women face when it comes to balancing a career and home life. Watch this movie when you need a spark of inspiration to start something of your own.
Wednesday: The Devil Wears Prada – Anne Hathaway strikes again. Her character takes on a job outside of her comfort zone where she is judged, disrespected, and overworked. She adapts to her controversial industry while also maintaining her values. This fashion filled movie will have you wake up a little earlier to get ready for the day. Dress for the job you want! When you look good you feel good.
Thursday: Erin Brockovich – Based on a true story. A single mother of three with no money (but a heck of a lot of grit) goes from broke to multimillionaire. Julia Roberts plays Erin Brockovich, a legal assistant who single-handedly brought down a California electric company for water contamination. The $333 million settlement was the largest direct-action lawsuit settlement in U.S. history. Great movie to watch when you’re feeling sorry for yourself and need some tough love.
Friday: Legally Blonde – Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods, a stereotypical dumb blonde who follows her ex boyfriend to Harvard in an effort to win him back. It’s a fun light-hearted movie but does prove that with determination and hard work, no matter who you are, you can do big things and prove everybody wrong.
All Weekend Long: Scandal – Binge watch this movie for the ultimate confidence boost. Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope, D.C.’s most sought after “fixer”. Her crisis management firm consists of a small team that helps her clean up dirty messes. She’s smart, aggressive, insanely confident, and dresses sharper than a pin needle. This movie will make you want to throw on a $500 pant suit and start owning every room you walk in. Before you binge watch, make sure you have plenty of popcorn and white wine…you’ll need it!
