Inside Out by Maria Snyder — A Book Review by Beth Barany — Trella is a 17 year-old who has only known white walls, tubes, square hallways, care mates, and a life of drudgery.
And she’s not like the rest of those sheep, all the others who live on her level, under those who have more and better lives who control their lives from the upper levels.
One of my favorite movies of all times — La Femme Nikita — by Luc Besson. I love her gutsyness, her stubbornness, and her fragility. I have to say I love the soundtrack too. It’s moody, a bit dangerous, and sensual, like Nikita.
I talked earlier about the Bad Girl Archetype: We Love Her, We Hate Her, We Want to Be Her and Characteristics of a Kick-Ass Heroine Archetype. You could call them Part 1 and 2, if you want! Today I continue my exploration of these Kick Ass Heroines that I love in books, movies and TV shows. Hence, part #3!
I devote this post to the bad girls I know and love, drawn from movies. The Bad Girl archetype is a powerful and ancient one, and well represented in our modern stories. The Bad Girl archetype is about reclaiming female power for the good of the community and the Bad Girl.
