Iron-Jawed Angels — Thursday, 15 March 2012

Please join us this Thursday (15 March 2012) at 7:00 PM for a screening of the film Iron-Jawed Angels.

If you missed the League of Women Voters showing of this film a few weeks ago, you will get another chance to see it.

Hilary Swank and Frances O’Connor, as suffragist activists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, lead an outstanding cast in this remarkable retelling of the true story of the the struggle to attain the vote for women between 1912 and the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.  Director Katja von Garnier’s use of modern music and camera technique turns the whole idea of a “period piece” on its head. She truly brings home the power of what these women accomplished, and what they endured in the process.

Free of charge and open to the public.  Light snacks provided.

Child care available upon request.  If you are coming, please RSVP by calling the church at 318-868-3313 or by emailing Susan Caldwell.  Let us know at that time if you will need child care.

Please Note — High school youth are welcome and encouraged to attend accompanied by a parent or with parental permission.  This film has no MPAA rating because it wasn’t released for screening in movie theaters (it was created for HBO and was broadcast on cable TV).  There are some strong scenes of violence, particularly when the women are imprisoned and force-fed, as well as brief nudity and sexuality.  A rough guess for a rating would be somewhere between PG-13 and R based on the webmaster’s memory of this film.  The international movie content ratings for this film can be found online here in case you need additional information for making this decision.
