1. Diana (2013), Princess Diana by Naomi Watts
Diana, Princess of Wales was a kind, passionate, interesting woman. She was known for her charity work and will to make the world a better place.

2. Alexander (2004), Queen Olympias by Angelina Jolie
Straight from the title you might think this isn’t exactly a movie about a great woman, after all it’s called Alexander. And you’d be right, it’s a movie about the life of Alexander the Great, who was possibly the greatest military leader to have ever lived. He did manage to conquer most of the world during his reign. But here’s the twist, his mother Olympias was a very interesting character. She actually did some very questionable things in her time in order to secure her son’s success. As you know, behind every powerful man there’s a very smart woman.
