Check out Down with Love, a picture in the vein of the ’60s Doris Day/Rock Hudson comedies. Starring Renée Zellweger as a feminist bestselling advice author and Ewan McGregor as a womanizing journalist who fall in love, this film oozes the era’s charm, complete with supper clubs, fake backlot scenes, and process shots.
If you are looking for something a bit more modern, AGAINST THE ROPES is a fictionalized account of female boxing manager Jackie Kallen. Meg Ryan stars as Kallen, with Omar Epps as her client, and Tony Shaloub as boxing kingpin Sam LaRocca. This is a powerful drama that draws the audience into Kallen’s life and her struggles as a woman trying to make her way in what was purely a man’s world.
