The Lady of the Tupperware Parties

Films about household items and the ladies who helped elevate their popularity seem to be raging in Hollywood.

Let’s see...there’s the Jennifer Lawrence-David O. Russell project about the inventor of the Miracle Mop.

And now there’s a movie about the rise of Tupperware that Sandra Bullock has her Oscar-winning eye ondon’t you know, don’t you know.

The still-untitled project – to be directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor, who wrote the script based on the non-fiction book Tupperware Unsealed – will tell the story of Brownie Wise, the trailblazing saleswoman who began throwing Tupperware parties in the ’50s and thus contributed to their It-ness.

Bullock, of course, would play Wise, a pioneering lady, yet an early example of the sexism that permeated her time.
