The Queen's Gambit

The Queen's Gambit ★★★★

Elizabeth Harmon is a total baddie, it’s almost as if she wasn’t written like a shallow fellow character that adheres to patriarchal tropes of masculine film society 🤔. YES, THE CHARACTER WAS WRITTEN HOW A MALE CHARACTER IS WRITTEN. 

- doesn’t define Elizabeth Harmon on her sexuality and relationship
- doesn’t undermine elizabeth’s intelligence for the conventions of love, femininity or etc
- allows for harmons pure passion of chess to be portrayed BY PRESENTING HERSELF AS A STRONG FEMINIST ICON and not undermining the character in order to propel another male character above herself
