From celebrated writer/director Andrew Bujalski (Mutual Appreciation, Funny Ha Ha) this critically-acclaimed, crowd-pleasing indie comedy features a fantastic ensemble cast led by Regina Hall (Girls Trip, The Hate U Give) with Haley Lu Richardson (Five Feet Apart), Dylan Gelula (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It), James Le Gros (Drugstore Cowboy), Lea DeLaria (Orange Is the New Black) and actress/rap artist Shayne McHayle. SUPPORT THE GIRLS will be available on DVD and Digital HD on 21 October 2019.
Lisa Conroy (Regina Hall) is the last person you’d expect to find in a highway-side ‘sports bar with curves’, but as general manager at Double Whammies, she’s come to love the place and its customers. An incurable den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely – but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from evey direction. Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it?
SUPPORT THE GIRLS received rave reviews from critics and audiences around the globe and huge praise for Regina Hall’s compelling performance which won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actress, making her the first African-American to win the award. At the top of many critics Best Films of the Year lists, SUPPORT THE GIRLS was also named by former President Barack Obama as one of his favourite films of 2018.
