Femphile Round-up: August 2016

I can’t believe August is over already! It’s been a great month for women in film; ‘The Falling’, ‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’ and ‘Trainwreck’ have all been released – to very positive reviews And I have yet to see any of them… I know I’m an absolutely terrible cinephile. My plan this week is to see some films!

A highlight for me this month was watching ‘Advantageous’ (there is a post about in the works!). I would highly, highly recommend it, it’s currently streaming on UK Netflix. I’ve also just finished season 2 of ‘Bojack Horseman’, which may just have become my favourite animated show ever. It goes from strength to strength, especially from season 1 to 2. Other than that, I’ve been watching a lot of ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ and ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’… and honestly, I have no regrets!

In other news, here’s what I’ve been reading this month!
