THE SALON

A selection of movies for Miss Corset by actress and blogger for the Snob magazine, Marusya Bordovskikh.

Girls, who runs the world? Us! Especially for you, lovely ladies, I present several movies and TV series that will motivate, charm, and give you a sea of emotions. Enjoy!

"Erin Brockovich"
Julia Roberts is not just an actress, but the epitome of true femininity. Julia uniquely combines grace, beauty, and inner strength. In "Erin Brockovich," Roberts played the lead role and deservedly won an Oscar for it. It's a true story about a single mother who rises against a corporation in California that contaminates the water with chromium and causes cancerous diseases among the local residents. Roberts and Brockovich seem as one: fearless and determined, following their dreams and goals. This film is an inspiration for every girl who wants to succeed both in her career and personal life.

"To Be Salvador Dali"
A spicy biopic about the famous Spanish artist and his journey. However, the most memorable part of the film is the story of the relationship between the creator and his wife, Gala (whose real name, by the way, is Elena Ivanovna Diakonova, and she comes from Kazan). Every genius has their muse and support, without whom they wouldn't be who they were or are. Without Gala, we probably wouldn't know who Salvador Dali is. This woman believed in him like no one else and brought him out of the most difficult and terrible emotional states. Despite all the hardships, betrayals, and completely different perceptions of life, Gala and Salvador complemented each other. And how the artist loved and even looked at his muse, every girl deserves to experience at least once in her life.

"Cruella"
Do you remember that cartoon after which each of us surely wanted a Dalmatian? Well, "Cruella" is a prequel to "101 Dalmatians", where throughout the film, Emma Stone dazzles with her vibrant outfits and striking dynamism. The girl who always finds herself in a mess gathers courage and stands up against injustice and humiliation, becoming the main icon in the world of English fashion. Disney's projects truly know how to perfectly blend fairy tales with reality, while inspiring their viewers to always move forward. And the outfits of each of the main characters, especially Stone's lavish fur coats and fiery dresses, are a separate form of art.

"Ice"
I remember this movie and it gives me goosebumps. When you find something that you can't live without, in other words, your purpose, that is true happiness. Nadya (played by Aglaya Tarasova) has dreamed of becoming a figure skater since childhood. And after diligent training, failures, and rejections, she becomes the best in her field. Through hardships to the stars. When everyone around you doesn't believe in you, but your intuition tells you that this is your path, follow it. Not just follow it, but fly. Like Nadya on the ice. The movie has a second part as well. Both parts undoubtedly revolve around sports and overcoming oneself, but also about love, family, and hope. It's no wonder the main heroine is named that way ;)

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"
This series breaks all stereotypes and emphasizes the idea that someone must be in charge in the house. New York, 1958. At that time, no one thought that women could lead a family, let alone earn any money. The series unfolds when energetic housewife Miriam Maisel suddenly realizes that comedy is her thing and becomes one of the most famous comedians in the country. And it all starts when Miriam experiences a complete collapse - her husband cheats on her, children don't listen, parents don't listen. Instead of complaining to her friends during aerobics classes, Miriam shares her life on stage. And people love it! I admire her incredible combination of honesty, exuberance, and elegance. Miriam, also known as Mitch, is a shining example of a woman who was able to overcome herself and step out of her comfort zone (with her picture-perfect family, money, a luxurious apartment in the best neighborhood, beautiful clothes, and fancy restaurants) to embark on a new and unknown chapter. Although it may be scary and unclear at first whether it's even worth giving up everything for some dream and impulse, sometimes it definitely is.
