In the past month or so, I’ve seen several outstanding movies and TV series that are written by or directed by women and that star women in roles where they either hold or take the power. I know I’m forgetting some or haven’t seen everything, so feel free to suggest more in the comments.
Prey is two kinds of origin stories. One takes us back 300 years to an early arrival of a Predator on earth in a story that precedes a long string of Predator movies. The second is the coming of age/origin of a Comanche hero, a young woman named Naru, played by Native American actor Amber Midthunder.
