Be Pretty and Shut Up!

Be Pretty and Shut Up!

Directed by Delphine Seyrig • 1976 • France
Starring Delphine Seyrig, Jill Clayburgh, Marie Dubois

For this eye-opening documentary, screen icon Delphine Seyrig interviewed twenty-four French and American actresses—including Jane Fonda, Jill Clayburgh, Juliet Berto, Ellen Burstyn, Maria Schneider, and Anne Wiazemsky—about their experiences working in a film industry dominated by male directors and producers. Their candid statements shed light on the alienation many of them feel playing roles that propagate a one-dimensional image of women and which bear frustratingly little resemblance to their lived experiences.
