Masculine Jealousy and Contemporary Cinema provides new insights into the relationship between masculinity and jealousy through the study of representations of male jealousy in contemporary Hollywood cinema. It argues that male jealousy has played a key role in the psycho-cultural shaping of Western masculinities and male fantasy, and this is explored through case studies of films and their reception in the press. The book will interest graduates, postgraduates and researchers exploring theories of masculinity and jealousy, cinematic theories of representation, stardom and spectatorship.
