Need an research paper on feminist theories of desire in relation to sex and the city first movie. Needs to be 9 pages. Please no plagiarism. Women have even invaded the silver screen as primary actors, where they are portrayed not as mere decorative support to men to underscore the men’s masculinity onscreen, such as illustrated in James Bond movies, under the paradox of phallocentrism espoused by one school of philosophical thought, but as powerful, strong and independent women emphatically illustrated in the Kill Bill series. Other movies with more realistic approach feature women as central characters showing their femininity, desires and strength. This paper tackles one such movie – Sex and the City. The movie was a spin-off of the very popular television series of the same title aired sometime in the 1990s. It deals with the lives of four women friends and their search for a career, romance and fulfilment in the city of New York.
In 2008, HBO films released the movie Sex and the City, a spin-off of the very popular television series of the same title, which aired sometime between 1994 and 2004. Largely perceived as an illustration of post-feminism because its lead characters are successful women, who are past the concern of proving themselves as equal to men, Sex and the City is about the desires of four women in their 40s who had to make it big in the Big Apple and are now in the last stretch searching for the ultimate happiness in the arms of the ideal man. Cast as the lead stars are Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York and Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes. These four women, who form the crux of a close-knit friendship, are frank, open and almost raucous in their love for life and good fun and desires for love, marriage, and sex.
The movie opens with Carrie, a successful New York Star columnist who writes a column entitled Sex and the City, and her boyfriend Big searching for the ideal apartment to move into as a couple and finds a beautiful penthouse suite, whose price is more than what they had on mind. .
