Deconstructing the Dream Girl

Nov 14, 2022 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM


With DJ Mama Jo

Every week, guests (or just me!) will discuss various films featuring 'manic pixie dream girls,' or MPDGs. MPDGs are whimsical, quirky, and eccentric fantasy women whose only purpose is to save the male protagonist from himself; thus, aside from the above attributes, are flat characters. Music featured will be from the film soundtrack or songs that fit ✨𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓿𝓲𝓫𝓮𝓼✨ of the characters or settings.
