Party Girl is an awesome female-directed 1995 film starring Parker Posey. It’s about both PARTYING and BEING A LIBRARIAN, which are basically two of the best things everrrr. PP’s character Mary is the best because she a) stands up for herself b) has amazing style c) embraces other cultures (appropriates, in the case of her ill-chosen bindi dot at the “Pita, Paul, and Mary” party) d) is true to who she is. This sounds like a bunch of fluffy mumbo-jumbo, but the movie is seriously fun, unafraid, and empowering. Sure, Mary is swimming in a sea of privilege, but she does her best to help the people around her. Plus, the movie’s just plain pretty.
