50 female friendships in movies

There is a very clever test that assesses a movie's treatment of its female characters. In order to pass the test, a movie must have at least two women who talk to each other about something other than men. Simple right?

Wrong. Given that, a lot of the time, getting a ring from a man is deemed the high point of women's lives, finding films where women have genuine relationships with each other isn’t as easy as you’d think.

But found them we have! We’ve selected 50 of cinema’s best female friendships where women laugh and cry, fight and make-up, go on road-trips and plot a murder or two.
