I Portrayed a Manic Pixie Dream Girl

Entertainment Portrayals

A term coined by film critic Nathan Rabin in 2007 after seeing Kirsten Dunst in Elizabethtown, usually referring to: ‘A pretty, outgoing, whacky female romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.'
