Cinematical put together a shockingly small list of great geeky girl movie characters. They're all fine examples, but surely there must be more out there along the lines of Thora Birch in Ghost World (left).
Geeky girls are few and far between in the 100+ years of cinema, but they are key to the revelation that technology and freethinking are not the sole playground of men. Geekology is omnisexual, and has been since...well that's the mystery.
Check out their list, and tell us what they missed. They did well as far as post 1990 goes, but what about the classics? I'm calling dibs on Lt. Uhura, possibly the first geek girl who simultaneously had a free, sometimes kooky mind, and access to a computer. Who else is a geek grrl of filmdom?
