Watch at Home: ‘And Then There Was Eve’ & more from female filmmakers

FF2 Media’s new “Watch at Home” columns list the new films written and/or directed by women filmmakers that are newly available each week on DVD, Video On Demand &/or streaming services.

Here are the new films written and/or directed by women filmmakers now available at home as of 1/25/2019 (with links to FF2 Media reviews posted the week of their theatrical release):

DANIELLE’S TOP PICK OF THE WEEK

This week’s selection is And Then There Was Eve. The film premiered during the summer of 2017 at the Los Angeles Film Festival.  While the film starring a cisgender male as a trans woman quickly picked up distribution, Eve played the festival circuit for a while.  And Then There Was Eve is one of the rare films that places the spotlight on a transgender actress in a leading role.

Much credit should to go to director Savannah Bloch, who co-wrote the screenplay with Colette Freedman, for being adamant that a trans woman was cast as Eve rather than following the Hollywood trend of casting cis males as trans woman.

Rachel Crowl shines in her role as jazz pianist Eve.  It’s one of breakout performances in 2017 and an acting performance that this transgender film critic is very happy to see.  Her performance is one that should give inspiration to transgender talent everywhere.
