Double Feature with GIRLFIGHT (4:30, 9:45)

(2017) dir Patty Jenkins w/Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Danny Huston, Lucy Davis, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen [141 min; 35mm]
Rising above the glut of superhero spectacles, Patty Jenkins’ WONDER WOMAN stands out from the pack. Jenkins and her star Gal Gadot have produced a rare comic book film that treats its hero like a real human being – or at least a demi-goddess with real emotions and complications – while never getting bogged down in taking itself too seriously.

“A rollicking action adventure in the tradition of ‘Indiana Jones’, with a fully functioning sense of humour and the year’s most lip-smackingly evil baddie.” – Cath Clarke, Time Out

“Suffering Sappho! Patty Jenkins’ ‘Wonder Woman’ is that rarity: a superhero movie with a heart.” – Moir MacDonald, Seattle Times

“‘Wonder Woman’ is a superhero movie, and it fulfills the heroic and mythic demands of that genre, but it’s also an entry in the genre of wisdom literature that shares hard-won insights and long-pondered paradoxes of the past with a sincere intimacy.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
