Most American teen films have mainly been about school boys rating teenage girls in terms of looks, and girls instead of taking power in their own hands, wear the cutest of tops, prettiest of clothes to score well in their rate games. In this Netflix original here’s where the game changes, or can we pun and say ‘Swiped’.
In many ways, ‘Swiped’ smashes patriarchy and allows young girls to love themselves, as well as fall in love in the old-fashioned way, in the digital era where one has apps for hook-ups and dating.
Even in the era of swiping left and right, girls have the power to not stoop down and open herself up, (literally), just to make the guys make love with them for the colour of their skin, or shape of their body. Here’s girls understand their power and make their own choices.
The film takes a true stance on feminism, and shows what exactly women too contribute to patriarchy. ‘Swiped’ is the movie teenagers (both boys and girls) probably need to see to understand how exactly they are going wrong, and how exactly they can fix themselves, if they are going wrong. The 90s kids who grew up watching ‘Mean Girls’, ‘Not Another Teen Movie’, ‘Clueless’,’13 Going on 30’, would probably understand why the young generation needs to watch ‘Swiped’.
