Or the Parvati twins?
If you see me typing in "quotes", that's because I'm remembering what it was like to be a fundie and then typing as if I was one :3 "Please. Understand that I only want to share God's love with you. I mean you no harm, really. You need to stop sinning."

I've been giving this probably too much thought over the last 24 hours... and the short answer is, there are very few women in film who are their own people, rather than a foil for the male lead to play off. Not that they can't be great characters, but its harder to really feel something. In TV theres a few more I really feel for, Kaylee from Firefly, Dana Scully from X-files, or Kate Austin from Lost. Most of the female characters who melt me are from literature. Ione Saldana from Night's Dawn, Angua from Pratchett's Guards series, pretty much any female lead from Heinlein, but Maureen and Podkayne especially.
And Goldberry from Fellowship, obviously, but like she'd ever even notice a mere human.
