Jim from "The Office" makes Feminist Movie
This is kinda neat. John Krasinski (a.k.a. Jim from The Office) has just directed a film called Brief Interviews with Hideous Men.
The movie is about a female graduate student who copes with a break-up by interviewing a bunch of "hideous men" for her dissertation. I'm not really sure how or why it's feminist, but Krasinski seems to think it is. He says this about the film: "I think at the end of the day it's a feminist movie which I'm really proud of, yeah."
Whether or not people will see it as a feminist movie, it's cool that he is "proud" to have made a feminist film, and is not afraid to use the F-word.
