In our film we wanted a powerful but modern femme fatale type figure as a protagonist. The character we have created represents women in their early twenties. We can see this through her modern fashion style and her femininity. She is shown in the opening to be doing her make up and pulling up her stockings, this beauty routine connotes not just a female figure but also one in her youth as she looks very trendy.

A film we came across which has a strong female protagonist, similar to ours is 'Mr and Mrs Smith':
Angelina Jolie plays the wife in an upper middle class family, but she is secretly an assassin. She is connoted as a wife who cooks for her husband, wears make up and nice fancy clothes, but under the surface is a woman on a mission. This type of character is who we hope to create for our film, as we are aiming to break the stereotypes of women in films. Our main character is going to be represented as a woman who can handle herself and can also be dangerous. She is shown as an influential woman through her attitude towards others, and her power over the men in her life.
