The Stepford Wives (1975)
I saw this on Turner Classic Movies. This film was based on the book of the same name by Ira Levin. It tells the story of Walter and Joanna Eberhart leaving NYC for Stepford, Connecticut with their two kids. Everything seems a complete departure from the hustle and bustle on the city to quiet town of Stepford.
Joanna is a total feminist and that rubs some townspeople the wrong way. Eventually, she meets Bobbie, a normal woman that wants to start of woman’s group to counteract the exclusion from men’s club. They come to find out that something is wrong with the women They only talk about cleaning products and cooking.
I wouldn’t say what happens, but I feel bad about the ending. I love this movie. Hollywood needs to stop making remakes of classic films. It doesn’t work.
This movie is saying something about the feminist movement. The men of Stepford want plastic wives that are subservient to them and gave them pleasure at any time they wanted.
