The Portrayal of The Bride in Cinema

So often in cinema woman are portrayed by their relationship to men. I thought it might be interesting to look at this through the use of women as brides, especially as quite a few female-led films have women in this role. Good films to look at might be any Dracula, The Corpse Bride (2005) Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)

  • Interesting to note is Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and its significant departure from a traditional marriage/ romance plot ending. It is a sort of dystopian world, so perhaps it is a statement on how the typical marriage plot is no longer viable in the present, nor will it be in the future. – Nicola 9 years ago
  • To the author who writes this topic: be sure to differentiate between "wife" and "bride." – Jeffrey MacCormack 9 years ago
