What is the MovieDiva Sirens and Smart Alecks film series all about? Those of you who know me from my twenty years as Film Curator at the North Carolina Museum of Art, or from my previous WUNC Radio appearances on “The State of Things” with Frank Stasio and Marsha Gordon, have an inkling of my taste, alreadyI like films with strong female characters; no victims, no doormats, no namby pambys. MovieDiva always highlights women who are extraordinary, whether they are icy blooded femme fatales or genial wisecrackers. A runaway princess, a department store gold digger, a Mob daughter and a dashing deb who learns about what’s important in life. You’ll never be bored when MovieDiva is around. 

—Laura Boyes, Curator, MovieDiva Film Series
