SATC’s moment

Whether you hated or loved the show (as a paragon of narcisisstic materialism vs. a refreshingly unapologetic celebration of female sexual liberation), you have to admit that the “Sex and the City Movie,” opening today nationwide, is having a “cultural watershed moment.” Melissa Silverstein well points out the signficance of its blockbuster status as a woman-centered film on her provocative and always well researched blog on women, Hollywood and feminism.

She reports that the movie resulted in an unprecedented number of screens sold out (400) for a “female-driven” film premiere in the history of Fandango.com, a movie ticket service (you know, the one advertised in ad before the movie in the theater with those puppets made of paper bags). She quotes Harry Medved of Fandango.com:

It’s unusual for a female driven movie to inspire so much fan anticipation. You would usually associate sold out shows with a comic book movie or a sequel to a summer tentpole. Clearly there is an audience for adult female driven pictures and many observers are hoping that Hollywood will make more of them. We haven’t seen anything like this before.

She also interviews top female movie critics, directors and bloggers — who weigh in on the significance of the film, despite some ambivalence about its materialism and lack of diversity — and some cynicism that Hollywood will dismiss it as just a “chick flick.”
