Ahead of their Time - Woman of the Year

Recommended Posts

With TCM showing "Woman of the Year" on the Essentials, I am reminded of the first time I saw it.  It seems to be remembered more now for the Tracy-Hepburn pairing, and admittedly that was historic.  But what struck me was the story, and how very modern it is.  Especially the ending, where she is given the space to be herself but now in a new (almost hyphenated!) existence as Tess Harding Craig.  No routine comedy ending of her turning into a 50s TV sitcom wife, content to be "just a housewife."  By acknowledging that not all women fit that bill, the movie was startlingly ahead of its time.  Any other films that have more than stood the test of time you can think of?
