Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Sociology - Individual, Groups, Society, grade: 1.3, University of Passau, language: English, abstract: "Annie Hall" was revolutionizing for the romantic comedy genre and a turning point for both the director Woody Allen and his muse Diane Keaton. This work elaborates on how a movie changed the way women dressed and perceived themselves. It draws a connection between gender and fashion, as fashion was and is an important medium in the emancipation of women. Gender roles and the expectation that come with them are still present today. Our cloths are an outer representation of gender which also works inwards, with its masculinity as well as femininity are still being produced and maintained separately from each other today.
"Annie Hall" marked Woody Allen’s start as a serious filmmaker in Hollywood, showing that he could not only make light comedies and slapstick but also touch on more deeper topics. "Annie Hall" was a turning point in his career, it catapulted him, but also Diane Keaton, into the mainstream of Hollywood. Many unknown actors that had small parts in the movie, went on and became famous like Jeff Goldblum or Sigourney Weaver, which had her debut on "Annie Hall".
