English Title: The Girl and the Gun
Running Time: 1h 18min
It’s hard not to wonder if Rae Red wasn’t thinking of Jean-Luc Godard, who famously said, “all you need for a movie is a gun and a girl,” when she began writing the film. In her first feature, Red comes out strong with a scenario too many women have imagined, no doubt, after enduring catcalls and asinine remarks in the workplace. Enter the gun. It certainly changes the way the conversation unfolds. Be ready for a stunning performance by Janine Gutierrez.
