Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice: Cinemas of Girlhood by Frances K. GatewardFrom the Wizard of Oz to Lolita, from the Heathers to the Spice Girls, images of girlhood have been projected on the silver screen in myriad ways. Whether a girl is taught that there is no place like home or is seeking adventure on her own terms, whether she is a seductress or a nerd, a babysitter or a murderer, films have depicted societys problematic expectations of girls together with the dreams, anxieties, and tensions experience by girls themselves. In examining the construction of girlhood from many angles, this collection of essays not only captures the richness of meaning behind girl films, but also explores the recent resurgence of youth-oriented cinema and the relationship of young female viewers to that medium.
The twenty essays approach to the construction of girlhood from a variety of perspectives, including reception, production, star images, and textual analyses, while exploring such topics as star power, the Riot Grrrl movement, coming of age, and loss of innocence. Among the characters given special attention are those in Gidget, Crooklyn, Titanic, Freeway and Girls Town. Written for general and academic readers, this work offers a lively, unprecedented discussion of gender in youth-oriented films.
