Lucky McKee's challenging and intelligent horror The
Woman will be playing Wednesday night at the Chauvel
Cinema in Paddington Sydney! Starts 8pm.
Special guests Director Lucky McKee (May) and actress Pollyanna McIntosh (the woman) will also be there for Q&A!
Out on a night of hunting, a man spots a primitive, wild woman whose feral ways he tries to tame after he captures her. In his basement he subjugates her through violence in an effort to 'civilize' her. The essence of what it is to be human is tested until breaking point when his family becomes involved and the atrocities he is responsible for come to light in a shocking and unfathomable way.
The Woman is a film that demands to be seen more than once, it is layered with rich complex detail that adds to the mystery of the story and the reasoning for the underlying madness.
If you haven't seen it, catch it in Sydney, if you have, see it again!
