Research output: Book/ReportBook



This book focuses on the mother-daughter relationship as it features in a number of films from the 1990s onwards. Bringing the insights of psychoanlysis to bear on a range of representations of the mother-daughter dynamic it addresses questions related to the historical and cultural conditions which go to inform the female experience. The films that go to make up this study all share a central concern with both the literal and symbolic forms that the mother-daughter relationship encompasses.
