10. Zoe Lister-Jones, Band Aid

Like her for her ability to slay on the bass guitar; love her for her determination to make marriage work in ways however unconventional. Writer and director Zoe Lister-Jones stars as Anna who takes to the garage to hash out her marital dissonance with husband Ben (Adam Pally). Hilarious at times and equally touching, too, Lister-Jones creates a character willing to confront the failures she finds in life for which Anna, Ben and misfortune share the blame. Refreshingly, there is no hint of spousal disposability here, nor any looking away from the deep-seated reasons of dissatisfaction. Anna represents all the best qualities of the modern, American woman: strong, committed, and faithful chiefly among them.
