Women Who Kill

Fri 29 September 2017

Morgan and her ex-girlfriend Jean are locally famous true crime podcasters obsessed with female serial killers. There’s a chance they may still have feelings for each other but co-dependence takes a back seat when Morgan meets the mysterious Simone during her Food Coop shift. The more she discovers about the mysterious past of her new lover, the more the commitment-phobic Morgan fears for her emotional and physical wellbeing. Though, isn’t that true to varying degrees of every coupling? Writer-director-star Ingrid Jungermann’s feature debut is a wickedly sharp dissection of Brooklyn’s lesbian scene, deftly weaving droll comedy with psychological thriller.

Content note: comedic discussion and depiction of violence, discussion of suicide and self-harm.
