4/4 Stars! “a masterful feature that has gotten people talking. Without a doubt, Ninja Thyberg is someone to watch out for and give all the money to, for all the projects.” (Movie Jawn)
Grade A! “it truly is one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking, and risky/risqué films I’ve seen in quite some time…A stunningly provocative exploration of the peaks and valleys of the porn industry led by a wowing performance from newcomer Sofia Kappel” (Silver Screen Riot)
“Kappel’s jaw-dropping and fearless performance blurs fiction and reality” (RogerEbert.com)
*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!
