International Women's Day is coming right up on March 8, but what some people tend to forget is that March is actually Women's History Month, during which the contributions of women to events in history are celebrated. In light of this, we've listed down the five female-directed films that you may have missed. It's never too late to catch up on these gems just in time for Women's History Month.

1. 'Lady Bird,' directed by Greta Gerwig

Starring Golden Globe Award-winning actress Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" is one of the biggest films of the last 12 months.

The film earned five nominations at the 90th Academy Awards and won Best Motion Picture during the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

The film follows the titular "Lady Bird," who is really Christine McPherson, a young woman at a Catholic Sacramento high school who dreams of fleeing her town and going to college in New York.

2. 'Professor Marston & The Wonder Women,' directed by Angela Robinson

2017 was a great year for DC, as it released Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman," to great reviews. The film was released in June and four months later, Angela Robinson's "Professor Marston & The Wonder Women" was released, giving more of a background to how the character of Wonder Woman came about. The film earned an 86% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

3. 'Monster,' directed by Patty Jenkins

It goes without saying that Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" was a massive success. But her innate talent for filmmaking wasn't hidden away before the DC film came about. In fact, in 2003, she directed "Monster," which starred Academy Award-winning Charlize Theron as serial killer Aileen Wuornos (also the titular character).

It remains to this day highly acclaimed, and Theron received the Academy Award for Best Actress, Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama and the SAG Award for her performance in the film.

4. 'American Psycho,' directed by Mary Harron

Canadian filmmaker and screenwriter Mary Harron was responsible for the 2000 film adaptation of "American Psycho," a novel by Bret Easton Ellis.

The film included a star-studded cast, with Christian Bale, Willem Defoe, Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, and Reese Witherspoon, among others. This isn't the only film Harron is famous for, as she is also best known for "I Shot Andy Warhol."

5. 'Tomboy,' directed by Céline Sciamma

In 2011, French screenwriter and film director Céline Sciamma gifted viewers with "Tomboy," a movie following a young girl who pretends to be a boy.

The film was described by The Guardian as "ethereally beautiful," while the New York Times commented that in this film, Sciamma "edges around her characters attractively, catching their glances, gestures, light and heavy words as if on the fly and then gently harnessing them to her low-key realism."
