Hollywood Heroines From 2012: New ‘Wide-Awake’ Short Film Series

The New York Times have release a new video gallery titled Wide-Awake starring the famous faces that the publication has determined to be the ‘Hollywood Heroines Of 2012“. These are the thirteen actresses whose performances defined the year in film, “discovering powers they never knew they had.”

The women starring in the videos include: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Keira Knightley, Rebel Wilson, Helen Hunt, Kerry Washington, Elle Fanning, Shirley MacLaine, Marion Cotillard, Emmanuelle Riva, Amy Adams and Quvenzhané Wallis.

There are thirteen of these short films/videos (one for each actress) and they all involve some sort of a dream sequence and/or transformation. For example, Anne Hathaway plays a depressed hotel maid who transforms into the beautiful woman she feels she is inside. Rebel Wilson finds herself lying on the ground in the middle of a waterfight, but then makes her way into the water and transforms into a mermaid. The videos are all very cool and very different from one another. Watch them below!

    Quvenzhané Wallis was phenomenal in beasts of the southern wild – if you get a chance to see it, do!

    i like it i would actually buy a dvd of this, i think its great how they kind of put a message through and connected everything as the different struggles and facets of womanhood. the beginning and ending were very nicely done. overall its good. the funny thing though is some of these would make great fragrance ads.
