The new Mad Max movie re-make, Mad Max: Fury Road was apparently planned as a platform to push feminist ideals. At least, that is according to one of the film’s actresses who says that the author of the feminist screed “The Vagina Monologues” was hired to consult on the movie’s female characters.
So, the new Mad Max will be a bit more touchy-feelie than past Maxes, apparently.
According to Huntington-Whiteley, who is playing one of several female characters to be rescued by legendary rogue enforcer Max Rockatansky, Fury Road will be less of a story about damsels in distress, and more about the empowerment of female survivors, thanks to Vagina Monologues author and feminine activist Eve Ensler.
Vanity Fair reports Austrailian-born Miller, who is now 70, sought out Ensler for that very purpose, and speculates it is possible Miller “recognized the limitations a male director and three male writers faced in trying to cover every nuance of a story about female exploitation and survival.”
So, what…. if Mad Max opens a door for one of these women they run him over with a hopped-up truck with spikes on it?
