“Catherine the Great” and “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” take us to fantastical new heights—while “Greener Grass” shows us the subversive horror in our own backyard. “Chez Jolie Coiffure” and “The Two Faces of a Bamileke Woman,” also out now, instead illuminate the complexities of women’s real lives.

Picks of the Week is Women and Hollywood’s newest resource. W&H writers are often asked for recommendations, so each week they’ll spotlight the women-driven and women-made projects—movies, series, VOD releases and more—that they’re most excited about.
“Transparent” comes to a musical end, “Judy” tells a harrowing true story and “Sister Aimee” takes us on an adventure.
“Brittany Runs a Marathon,” based on a true story, reminds all of us that we have the power to change. And “Tigers are Not Afraid” shows us that we can find humanity even in the darkest times.

“One Child Nation” and “After the Wedding” take on global women’s rights, while the girls of “GLOW” take on Sin City. Here’s what to watch this weekend.
What “The Nightingale” and “Four Weddings and a Funeral” have in common is their willingness to confront conversations about race.
These series and films, out now, lend a glimpse into women’s experiences in the justice system—and in the midst of war.
