This week we are looking at the films Paradise Hills and Level 16 that are both set at dystopian finishing schools where being the perfect girl is the goal. These young women are trapped in the trappings of femininity and sacrificed in the pursuit of an apparent notion of female perfection. We discuss this in relation to a recent TIME article that argues that women’s genre filmmaking is “about women’s deepest anxieties”. Content warning: discussion of rape culture and violence against women.
