Gone With the Wind

Amidst war and change, Scarlett fights for love and her desires, with Rhett as her match.


Why watch this film?

A grandiose production, from the Golden Age of Hollywood. It is referenced as one of the greatest films ever made, with a memorable soundtrack and a winner of ten Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Actress. It also represented the first time a black actress received an award - Best Supporting Actress for Hattie McDaniel. The commercial success was also tremendous, being, to this day, the highest-grossing film in the US when considering inflation over the period. Still, there are problems with the movie, the biggest being its glorification of slavery. It is a work that should be watched, but always with a critical eye and taking into consideration the historical context.
