Don’t you hate it when you watch a heist movie, and it’s great… except there are no women? The Oceans series, Tower Heist, the original The Italian Job. What, are women incapable of playing with gadgets and stealing multimillions? Can I get a Hell, NO! Well, I’m sick of it, I tells ya! So: Imagine you’re about to rob a bank/casino/Rupert Murdoch (whichever best suits your conscience). You have three companions to pull of the job. Who would you choose?
Stella Bridger in The Italian Job remake. She’s brilliant with her tools, and when she hasn’t got them, quickly learns to do it by instinct.
Virginia Baker in Entrapment. That woman can steal anything from anywhere. She’s swiped the jewelry off you while you were reading this. Yeah, your hand went to your neck/wrist/finger, didn’t it?
Lara Croft. Because she’s Lara Croft.
