Q & A to follow with Claudia Weill, CAROL GILLIGAN, “In a Different Voice”, “Why Patriarchy Persists”, and HONOR MOORE, poet, “The Bishop’s Daughter, a memoir”
Claudia Weill’s delightful and groundbreaking indie follows aspiring New York photographer (Melanie Mayron in a stylishly subtle performance) as she navigates her way through a complicated web of friendships and romantic entanglements after her best friend and flatmate leaves to get married. A story told with a sharp eye for comedy and surprisingly contemporary feel, GIRLFRIENDS is a warm, wise and funny treatise on female friendship that pioneered an entire subgenre of films and TV about best friends living in the big city – think Sex in the City, Lena Dunham’s Girls (on which Weill was also a director) and Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s Frances Ha. Also featuring superb performances from Eli Wallach, Christopher Guest, and Bob Balaban.
“Girlfriends feels like my oldest influence- from the first shot, I was transfixed. By the complex relationships, the subtlety, the odd comedy that was awkward long before awkward was cool.” – Lena Dunham
“One of the very rare American films that I would compare with the sensitive, intelligent filmmaking that you find in the best directors in Europe” – Stanley Kubrick
