From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)
Five films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:
- The Gospel According to Andre
- How to Talk to Girls at Parties
- In Darkness
- Mary Shelley
- Summer 1993
Of these five, I was able to see four. One — The Gospel According to Andre — is a doc. The other three — How to Talk to Girls at Parties, Mary Shelley and Summer 1993 — are narrative features.
This was one of those weeks in which each and every film I saw was a delight – all very different from one another and each one close to perfect in its own way.
So choosing a Top Pick for May 25th is almost a coin toss. But if I have to pick one (and by my own self-imposed rules, I do), then my pick for June 1st is — drumroll please — How to Talk to Girls at Parties .
