29- Manic Pixie Dream Girls |
These are a character type found in film. The term was coined by Nathan Rabin to describe the sort of one-dimensional, free-spirited, beautiful girl that serves to inspire the male protagonist on his journey. Apparently she’s a man’s fantasy: slightly eccentric in a sexy way, super dreamy and cute, she’s quirky and fun and has no baggage. The ideal innocent-but-soooooo-much-fun chick. She’s sooooooo hot. I mean cute, winky face. Blah blah blah. Shut up, patriarchy. But alas, perhaps it’s a woman’s fantasy to be a manic pixie dream girl.
