Fairy tales frequently feature damsels in distress. Evil witches trapped Rapunzel in a tower, cursed the princess to die in Snow White, and put Sleeping Beauty to sleep in the longest nap of her life. This film doesn’t feature the same kind of evil but it looks like the damsels distresses could turn out to be equally as evil. Also be careful when typing this film title in to Google – gosh did I see some things that are unmentionable this morning!
It’s a far cry from the world of most films that involve groups of women, this one looks smart, funny and dare I say it intelligent, there’s not a pom-pom or prom queen in sight. Instead there are clinics for people wanting to take their lives and a lot of therapeutic tap dancing.
It did the business last year at film festivals and stars a bevy of talent, fresh and established including, Greta Gerwig, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Carrie MacLemore, Analeigh Tipton, Hugo Becker, Ryan Metcalf, Billy Magnussen, and Adam Brody. Reviews are positive and this looks delightful.
