“Regina Hall’s performance – tender, tough, empathetic, controlled – crumples from tears to laughter in a blink. It’s phenomenal.” – Amy Nicholson, Variety
“The sharp-elbowed humor is laced with aching tenderness, tightrope-tense frustrations over money and love, and an underlying mix of social pathologies that bubbles through the show-biz surfaces…” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
The latest film from writer-director Andrew Bujalski (FUNNY HA HA, COMPUTER CHESS) is here.
Lisa Conroy (Regina Hall) is the last person you’d expect to find in a highway-side “sports bar with curves,”– but as general manager at Double Whammies, she’s come to love the place and its customers. An incurable den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely–but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction…Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it.
Filmed in Austin with a wonderful ensemble cast that includes Haley Lu Richardson, James LeGros, Shayna McHalye and Brooklyn Decker.
