Buy Ticket

Independent Women is a monthly screening series bringing you underrated, overlooked, “Why haven’t I seen this?!” films directed by women.

“[A] fascinating and admirably adult true-life drama about the creation of the feisty Amazon we think we know so well.” – TIME Magazine 
 
Easily one of my favorites of 2017. I felt like I was screaming into a void when talking about this film because it left theaters before anyone could see it. This month we’re bringing it back to the big screen and now you can scream with me!” – Shayana Filmore, Independent Women Curator & Host 
 

If behind every great man is a great woman, then Harvard psychologist and inventor Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) has the good fortune of having two — his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and their mutual lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote). In addition to helping him perfect the lie detector test, the two women also inspire him to create one of the greatest female superheroes of all time — the beloved comic book character Wonder Woman.

Dir. Angela Robinson. 2017. 108 min.

Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink.
