The film Real Women have Curves was directed by Patricia Cardoso and produced by George LaVoo in 2002. The film can be overly attributed to depicting the female gaze. This is evident in that the main character, Anna Garcia, displays the levels to which a female can rise if only she releases herself from the societal limitations placed on her based on gender. In the film, she goes against her family’s will of taking up employment immediately she clears high school and opts to pursue further education. Her family’s intent was to put her into employment so that she could support them. However, she disapproves of this and pursues university education at the Columbia University (Cardoso n.p.). The portrayals of Anna seek to suggest that women have the right to their choices in life, and that by ignoring the societal construction of their weakness, they can achieve as much as they dream of.
One point in the film which supports the female gaze concept is that Anna’s mother thinks that it is unattractive and unacceptable of a woman to have excess weight. This is seen in that she is constantly complaining about Anna’s weight saying she will never find a suitor. Anna however despises this statement which suggests of her mother’s possession by the male gaze. She appreciates herself and does nothing to reduce her weight so as to “please men” (Berardinelli 327).
Additionally, Anna is free to speak up her mind and does not care as long as it means the best for her while not disrupting anyone else. In the film, this is seen in that she openly shoots down her mother’s suggestion that she should not further her education since education is useless. In its place, her mother offers to teach her to be a good housekeeper, being a good mother, and raising children. Anna again says that she is never going to be a housewife, and that education is the best way of achieving her dreams
