Director Courtney Hoffman is redefining the Western genre for women. Starring Big Little Lies
's Laura Dern
and Arrested Development
's Alia Shawkat, The Good Time Girls
— Hoffman's Shatterbox Anthology
debut — unfolds as a fearless portrait of brutality and revenge. Set deep in a tumbleweed-strewn desert, the film focuses on one wronged group of women's thirst to get even with the notorious Rufus Black Gang — a roving band of murderous, pistol-swinging criminals. Lured to the women's sweat-drenched brothel, the Rufus Black Gang has no reason to suspect the coming calamity. And while we don't want to give away too many details about the ladies' seriously kickass rifle-slinging skills, Hoffman's The Good Time Girls
definitely feels like a Shakespearean tragedy with a feminist wink. Did we mention that, in order to honor the Western genre, Hoffman chose to shoot The Good Time Girls
on Kodak 35mm?
