The film, Frozen, has landed in our zeitgeist and isn’t going anywhere soon. Codirectors, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, have knocked the musical story telling experience out of the park. Jennifer Lee also wrote the screenplay, making her a wondrous, double threat.

About the current studio system in Hollywod that favors men, Lee said, “I don’t know what the magic formula would be to change it; I’d love to find it. I love that there are more women. The more women do bigger films as well, I think the more that will help. I think all we can do is keep pushing.”
