About this Event

All Bright Lights screenings are free and open to the pubic. Seating is on a first come basis, no tickets or RSVPs. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Co-presented with the Boston Women’s Film Festival, the Independent Film Festival Boston and the Boston Underground Film Festival.

In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill and Lisa are locked in a passive-aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life—starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That’s just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is this hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire. Discussion led by assistant professor Maria Corrigan to follow.
