[BD Selects] ‘The Woman’ Opens in Texas and Ohio

The Woman

It’s tough being a small indie company and getting into theaters, but we’re trying our best. Those of you in Ohio and Texas hoping to catch Lucky McKee’s The Woman are in luck as we’ve added three new venues in November. You’ll find the information inside.

The story follows a successful country lawyer who captures and attempts to “civilize” the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast in the wild for decades, thereby putting the lives of his family in extreme jeopardy.

Starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis, the film prompted furious debates and walkouts during its world premiere in the Park City at Midnight program at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Reports surfaced of people becoming sick while watching the graphic scenes and one irate Sundance audience member went so far as to say THE WOMAN “ought to be confiscated, burned. There’s no value in showing this to anyone.” Whether a “wonderfully bizarre tale” or an “inhumane degradation of women,” you’ll have to decide for yourself.
