Join us for a special advance screening of internationally-acclaimed underground queer-cinema filmmaker Bruce LaBruce’s new feature film The Misandrists, presented as one of this year’s Orange County LGBT Pride’s closing events!
A stylish, campy, and wholly entertaining madcap political satire, The Misandrists finds an injured male Leftist on the run stumbling upon the remote stronghold of the Female Liberation Army — a radical feminist terrorist group whose mission is to usher in a female world order. One of the members of the FLA takes pity on him and hides him in the basement, however their new friend in the basement is just one of many secrets threatening to disrupt their mission from within… Balancing sharp social commentary and salacious popcorn entertainment, iconic filmmaker Bruce LaBruce has created an experience that’s a blast to watch, and just as much fun to dissect afterwards.
Directed by Bruce La Bruce. Not Rated – viewer discretion advised. 91 minutes.
“Grade: A. LaBruce makes room for a nuanced critique of gender essentialism, even as he celebrates this male-free utopia; this is part of what elevates The Misandrists beyond a merely (admittedly very) satisfying rendering of a salacious premise.” – Jude Dry, indieWire
“The Misandrists presents an unusual atmosphere, one mainstream cinema can not even conceive of, let alone get on a screen.” – Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
“A diverting bad-taste frolic for the sufficiently jaded.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety
