ABSTRAK

Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk menenemukan emosi dominan dan karakteristik-karakteristik ideal untuk wanita berdasarkan pandangan para feminis radikal libertarian di dalam karakter Amy Elliot Dunne dari film Gone Girl. Penelitian ini dikategorikan sebagai penelitian kualitatif deskriptif dan menggunakan pendekatan analisa konten. Peneliti menggunakan film Gone Girl (2012) dan naskah filmnya sebagai sumber dari data. Data didapat dari narasi, monolog dan dialog dari Amy dan karakter-karakter lain yang mengindikasikan emosi dominan dari Amy dan hubungan karakternya dengan karakter ideal wanita berdasarkan pandangan feminis radikal libertarian menggunakan teori D.I.S.C Marston dan teori feminis radikal libertarian. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa Amy benar memiliki emosi dominan  yang membuatnya sebagai seorang androgini, hal itu untuk melawan pengalaman-pengalaman buruknya, dan karakteristiknya tersebut membuatnya memenuhi kriteria ideal untuk wanita menurut feminis radikal libertarian. Film Gone Girl menampilkan Amy sebagai wanita yang bukan merupakan golongan inferior di masyarakat dan juga ia sebagai wanita yang merdeka di dalam dunia yang didominasi pria dengan memiliki status, berpendidikan, dan harta yang merupakan tujuan dari feminis radikal libertarian. Akan tetapi, peneliti mengambil kesimpulan bahwa karakter Amy tidak layak untuk dijadikan sebagai panutan yang mewakili feminis radikal libertarian dikarenakan Amy pada dasarnya diciptakan sebagai tokoh jahat dalam film yang menampilkan perilaku menyimpangnya  sampai pada poin tertentu di dalam film.
