“a strong and very funny comic through-line…refreshingly original in its rethinking of the grifter film” (Alliance of Women Film Journalists)

“very funny, and a stellar debut for Ulman.” (Vox)

“Besides shrewd directorial decisions, Ulman also has brilliant comic instincts as an actress” (The Moveable Feast)

“a wonderfully sly feminist comedy…the announcement of a major comedic talent with an ear and eye for artistic ideas that are truly meaningful” (The Playlist)

  • Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
