Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 22nd at 3:30pm (another early show) for Double Dare at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag and sitting with his crutches either outside if it’s nice or in the lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion. This film is showing in the Coolidge’s small screening room, so you might want to purchase tickets ahead of time from their website.
Just as a heads-up, the Boston SNFC will be taking Memorial Day weekend off.
This double-barreled, action-packed documentary follows two un-sung Hollywood heros: Jeannie Epper and Zoë Bell, who have been set on fire, thrown off buildings, dragged by wild horses and hit by cars. As stuntwomen, Epper doubled for Wonder Woman in the 70’s, and New Zealand native Bell landed the coveted job doubling Xena at the age of 18. Academy Award winning director (and Boston native) Amanda Micheli fills DOUBLE DARE with star-studded interviews and rollicking live-action stunt sequences, to create a candid look at these two strong, dedicated women.
