Release Date: May 6th (NYC-Quad Cinema), by Balcony Releasing.
BASIC PREMISE: A documentary about Jeannie Epper and Lynda Carter, two old and young stuntwomen. .
ENTERTAINMENT VALUE: The two charismatic stuntwomen are full of charisma and help to enliven the film. The stunts these women have to endure are very difficult and the fact that they survive them is nothing short of amazing. Their passion for their work is evident in every scene. Jeannie Epper, the older stuntwomen is a quite funny individual--the sign on her front door is "Friends are Welcome, Relatives by Appointment". It is refreshing to watch two strong women with a lot of ambition--and guts-- to succeed in achieving their dreams. The behind-the-scenes stunts in Kill Bill are very entertaining, as Lynda Carter, the younger stuntwoman doubles for Uma Thurman. .
SPIRITUAL VALUE: This film is full of inspirational messages for achieving one's dreams. Even though Carter gets turned down for a stunt role, she does not give up. She continues to show off her amazing talent with Epper as her guide and mentor. They are like mother and daughter except without all the fighting; they save all the fighting for their stunt work. .
INSULT TO YOUR INTELLIGENCE: None.
