19May24: The FF2 Week in Review by Jan Lisa Huttner

From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media LLC)

Three films written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theaters this week:

I am happy to report that, with only three to see, I was able to see all of them.

The comedy Booksmart was fun and the Woodstock documentary worked well as nostalgia (“What a long strange trip it’s been!), but my favorite–by far–was Jill Magid’s elegant and intriguing film The Proposal. What is The Proposal?  Is The Proposal a documentary? If you had to pick a genre then, sure, documentary… but that hardly describes a film that’s really a meditation on the border between fact and imagination.

Me? I loved it, so my Top Pick for May 24th (drumroll please!) is The Proposal!
