Female Independence, Racial Contradictions - Sberber's Ambition: Fighting for the Oscars

From purple, to human and ghost, to the nun series, Whoopi is an amazing actor. She's not beautiful, she's black, but she's definitely a powerhouse with character. She is sometimes timid, sometimes cunning, sometimes humorous, sometimes cute. Her eyes are vivid, her smile is funny and cute, she adds color to the film.

Xili's fate is not good, she looks bad, has a weak personality, and is married to a domestic violence and unfaithful man, but she always secretly laughs, she guards her little happiness. In fact, she longs for independence, longing for life, and longing for love.

Lao Si deliberately chose black people to tell this story of female independence, which is a little cunning. If it is a white person, it will be a little mediocre, and white women are indeed liberated earlier. Racial inconsistencies make the story's intent to hit the Oscars all the more obvious. The story and shooting techniques are quite traditional and quite satisfactory. If I were told that this was a film from the 1950s, I would believe it. The protagonist went from weakness, experiencing setbacks to growth, resistance, to success, and finally gave us a touching happy ending. Overall, the story is brought to life by Whoopi's performance.

    Typical works of Uncle Si, atmospheric and classic. Female subjects, in addition to the protagonist, the background experience and rise of various other women make the movie quite full. Although it is an independent subject of black women, it also has its background in the times. Even if it is in the modern era, certain accumulations can also be used as a warning to modern women.
