Women Who Kill

DIRECTOR: Ingrid Jungermann

West Coast Premiere

Expected to attend: Director/Actor/Writer Ingrid Jungermann

We all know that mystery keeps a relationship alive and that love can be dangerous. But can it also kill you? Exes Morgan and Jean are “Women Who Kill,” paranoid co-hosts of a podcast about female murderers. They’re inches away from getting back together when the mysterious, sexy Simone joins their Park Slope food co-op and Morgan falls quick and hard. But Simone’s secrets make everyone’s fur stand on end, and jealous Jean is convinced she might be a killer with a past to hide. Now what’s a commitment-phobe to do when everything that felt right seems suddenly wrong?

Hot off its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, Women Who Kill is a whip-smart dark comedy that asks some clever questions about trust and intimacy. Is Googling someone the first step in a serious relationship? How soon is too soon to rent the U-Haul? Can you still get fat and happy with the love of your life even if she might be a deviant sociopath? In this feature debut, lauded writer-director Ingrid Jungermann (co-star and co-creator of the acclaimed lesbian web series The Slope and F to 7th) stars as Morgan alongside Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) as Simone and Ann Carr (The Actress) as Jean, with turns by co-stars Deborah Rush (Orange Is the New Black) as cranky co-op manager Grace and Annette O’Toole (Smallville) as creepy killer Lila.
