A look at Fight Like a Girl


Fight Like a Girl is about women making the choice to stand up and fight for their life”
-Huffington Post, Gerry Gavin

"Morley views the sport and women in the ring with a steady, knowledgeable eye that can only be derived from participatory knowledge gained inside the ropes."
-WBAN, Bernie McCoy

 



WHAT: WORLDWIDE VOD and DVD Release of Fight Like A Girl 
WHEN: NOW

Why would a woman step into the ring, don the gloves and risk her life in front of a blood hungry crowd? In a gritty, first-person narrative, shot over a period of five years, award winning filmmaker Jill Morley delves inside the little-known world of female boxers to meet the women who are passionate about fighting hard. She gets pulled into this culture as she trains for the New York Golden Gloves. From world champions to amateurs, Morley discovers that there’s a common thread in each of their stories. Real emotional history and traumas bubble up, fleshing out a compelling counter-intuitive documentary, where women find a path to recovery and healing through a violent and largely male sport.

This is a powerful film about a relevant and important issue,” says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director/ CEO of Vision Films, Inc, the Distribution Company representing Jill Morley’s Documentary. “Jill Morley sets an example to women around the world who are battling their own demons, showing them that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Sleepwalker is Now Available on Digital HD and On Dem…

THE GRAND GESTURE: That Awkward Moment

We bring on "The King of Cringe" for THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, something our guest JARED DOTSON of SOBER CINEMA takes issue with. However much to our surprise, he does not take issue with this not so well regarded romcom from 2014 starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller as three guys making a pact to navigate single life together after one friend's marriage ends. And while the romances don't particularly work here (except for the one with the great Mackenzie Davis who makes any role work) this boys club movie ends up having its own particular charms. Like a combination of ice cream and bourbon this one goes down easy in our latest episode you can find here and at the links below:
