Here are the new films written and/or directed by women filmmakers now available at home as of 5/10/2019 (with links to FF2 Media reviews posted the week of their theatrical release):

  • Bathtubs over Broadway – Dava Whisenant (director) (streaming on Netflix)

This week’s selection is Amy Poehler’s directorial debut, Wine Country.  The film just launched on Netflix today.

Wine Country reunites Amy Poehler with many of her Saturday Night Live colleagues as they travel to California for a birthday weekend.

Rebecca (Rachel Dratch), Catherine (Ana Gasteyer), Abby (Amy Poehler), Naomi (Maya Rudolph), Val (Paula Pell), and Jenny (Emily Spivey) are all gathering for a special weekend.  The weekend just so happens to be Rebecca’s 50th birthday.  As such, the women are off to California’s Wine Country to celebrate the milestone birthday.  It’s here where they end up staying at one of five properties owned and managed by Tammy (Tina Fey).
