Hollywood has been fertile ground for brothers. It has accommodated the Warner brothers, the Marx brothers, the Coen brothers, the Farrelly brothers, the Hughes brothers, the Wayans brothers.
So where are all the sisters?
"There's so many brothers!" exclaims Jennifer Todd, who partnered with her older sister Suzanne for 13 years to produce blockbuster movies as Team Todd. She is probably thinking of the Weitz brothers, the Wachowski brothers, the Wilson brothers.
"It's endless!" agrees "Tao of Steve" co-writer and director Jenniphr Goodman. "I ask myself, 'How come there aren't more sisters?'"When you think about sisters in Hollywood, the ones who immediately spring to mind are the Kardashians. Or maybe the Olsen twins. "I mean, I appreciate them," Jenniphr says.
"Where are the Brontës?" laments Greer Goodman, Jenniphr's younger, blonder sister, co-writer and star of "Tao of Steve."
Sure, it's an industry dominated by brothers. The latest reports from Stacy Smith, who studies gender and media at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, show only 7% of feature directors are women, 13% of writers are women and 20% of producers. But search a bit and you will find there actually are sisters who team to make movies. Women who've found business partners who support them 100%.
