This paper studies the film "The Piano" which portrays sexism and misogyny and an essay by Bell Hook concerning these issues. It examines the film's themes and analyzes its main characters. It also discusses the historical correctness of the film. It studies the roles of men and women in the film and concludes that there is male domination.

From the Paper:

"The Piano "seduces and excites audiences with its uncritical portrayal of sexism and misogyny." Misogyny and sexism are the central themes in the movie, although I have to say that the movie relies on these ideas to keep it alive and of interest to women because it's the very most thing they are familiar with. The movie has received rave reviews because of its sexuality and expression, although I do not think the average person sees the misogyny present or the harm in it being presented this way again and again. I believe this is because it has become so mainstream and accepted that it's hardly recognizable anymore. "No one speaking about this film mentions misogyny and sexism or white supremacist capitalist patriarchy." "
