It is a rarity.. women centric movies. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t quality movies that revolve around women out there. Here’s the list of top women centric movies where with strong female lead. All of them are really good and you must check them out, if you haven’t yet.
1. Silence of the Lambs
Clarice Starling, a young U.S. FBI trainee, seeks the advice of an incarcerated serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter to apprehend another serial killer, known only as “Buffalo Bill”. Like our previous entry, this film presents a clash of titans. To feed off the blood-curdling aura created by Anthony Hopkins’ Lecter as an ally, yet an adversary, and to rally with quiet brilliance is no mean feat. Between Lecter’s flashes of mania and Buffalo Bill’s macabre body-pile, it is ultimately Foster’s dedicated rendition of a FBI rookie trying to create an identity while being haunted by a childhood trauma which holds the film together.

2. Annie Hall
A ditzy aspiring nightclub singer is the prominent love interest of comedian Alvy Singer, who narrates the film, drawing a humane sketch of modern romance. With its camera making love to NYC, the unusual storytelling techniques and razor-sharp quotable dialogue, ‘Annie Hall’ is pretty much the perfect romantic comedy. The conversations, in particular (in one scene accentuated with “Inner Dialogue” through subtitles) are bang-on caricatures of modern urban romance. But it wouldn’t have been what it is without Keaton as the titular character. She keeps it funny, hearty yet realistic to the core as the flighty singer from Wisconsin with a quirky fashion sense who grows into a confident, composed person by the time the curtains are down, while Alvy is still an emotional mess.
