Mona Lisa Smile focuses on an all-girls college in the ’50s and to help us guide us through there is Ethan’s partner, Lindsay. We picked this movie having literally no knowledge of what it’s about. Just the title of the film is enough to pique our curiosity. Is Mona Lisa actually in this movie??? Well, other famous artist’s works do show up, but none of the characters are in the film. What does show up is the overwhelming force of patriarchal norms that plague what should be a liberal all-girls school. Is the movie as memorable as its title though?
