Bite-sized blog post: Gillian Armstrong

Gillian Armstrong

Australian director GILLIAN ARMSTRONG after several successful films in Australia directed the Hollywood film Little Women (1994) starring Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Susan Sarandon and Christian Bale.

I think there is still a misconception that all directors are Cecil B. De Mille types with a loud voice and a whip. Perhaps maybe that’s why there’s always been some puzzlement about a woman in the director’s role.
