Looking for some indie fun in the new year? Depending on your location you’ll be able to get your fix as Anchor Bay Films has announced that Austin Chick’s Girls Against Boys (review here) will open in both New York and Los Angeles theaters on February 1st.
This SXSW darling was directed by Austin Chick and stars Danielle Panabaker, Nicole LaLiberte, Liam Aiken, Michael Stahl-David, and Andrew Howard.
Girls Against Boys is a character-driven, psychological thriller about two girls on a killing spree in New York. With edgy and ironic humor and a darkly meditative tone that is far more European or Asian than typically American, it is also a coming-of-age story about a young woman coming to understand how the world really works. It’s a ride for sure, and it even gets more than a little gruesome, but it’s character-driven rather than action-driven, and it has a psychological twist that’s more like a way of reading the film than a big reveal.
