The “Good For Her” Cinematic Universe

Hello and welcome to the “good for her” cinematic universe! Is there really anything better than thinking “good for her” while a woman achieves her dreams or receives an end to her story that is actually satisfying? NO!!! Please note: Being a member of this list does NOT mean the character's ending is specifically being viewed as happy. Looking for an IRL “good for her” watch? Check out the sister list, “Powerful Women IRL”, a list of female focused documentaries!

Movies added are ones that I’ve specifically seen and think fall in this category. Super open to suggestions of any kind! If I haven’t seen the suggestion, I’ll add it to my watchlist and add to the list after viewing! Sorted…
