So females are better suited to direct certain scripts than comparably qualified males? I'd think that the best director for the project at hand would be the best director for the project at hand, period.
But maybe I should read the article and then add to my first reaction.
EDIT: Ok, I skimmed the article which pretty much lost my interest after "Any creature on screen minus a 'Y' chromosome tends to be a side player in this cinematic universe."
Why does this need to be a male vs female thing? The best person for the job is the best person for the job. This ain't the 1950s. Hollywood is full of capable women who could do a great movie. And many have.
I just have to roll my eyes when people play the race, gender, whatever card. If you got the goods and can make the studios money, they'll beat down your door to let you do it.
But I'm not in Hollywood, so I could be wrong.
