Guess who watched Mad Max on her international flight!

While it’s undoubtedly a Hollywood blockbuster complete with a two hour long car chase, explosions, and damsels in distress, it’s a Hollywood blockbuster which redefines the role a male lead needs to play in saving the day.

In Fury Road, Max Rockatansky doesn’t finish the quest and get the girl. He supports a cast of female characters (led by the badass Imperator Furiosa) in their journey to self liberation.

Perhaps a step towards the kind of films Colin Stokes says boys need to watch more of? Check out his TED Talk called, ‘How movies teach manhood‘.
