Popular films can do more than merely entertain us; they can contribute to our understanding of human nature. Feminist Ethics in Film explores the quasi-biographies on offer at the cinema and shows how these stories and relationships deepen our theoretical grasp of care-based ethics that have been overlooked in less contextualized discussions. In particular, the book examines the relationships between care and community, autonomy, family and self-transformation. Examining films from the perspective of feminist, care-based ethics both expands our knowledge of this burgeoning area of philosophy and adds depth to our appreciation of the films.
