Double Feature with WONDER WOMAN (7:00)

(2000) dir Karyn Kusama w/Michelle Rodriguez, Santiago Douglas, Jaime Tirelli, Paul Calderon, Ray Santiago [110 min; 35mm]
An auspicious debut for both writer/director and star, GIRLFIGHT is the first feature from favorite genre film director Karyn Kusama (The Invitation) and the debut of Michelle Rodriguez who has gone on to master badass roles. In GIRLFIGHT, Rodriguez stars as Diana, a teenager who finds an outlet for her talent for fighting in the boxing ring.

Staff Pick: Cara

“Rodriguez smolders with the beauty and intensity of a born star, and Kusama keeps her fearlessly on her feet with a movie that ducks no punches.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Rodriguez, taking punches as well as she dishes them out, is a champion whom women and men alike can cheer.” – Peter Keough, Anchorage Press

“[Rodriguez] looks a little like Marlon Brando in his smoldering prime, and she has some of his slow, intense physicality. She doesn’t so much transcend gender as redefine it.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
