Every festival has its most controvertial film. This year, The Woman was one of those at Sundance. The film, directed by Lucky McKee, inspired walkouts and furor, including an infamous caught-on-video altercation in which an audience member demands the film be banned. Well, like it or not, The Woman is getting its day in theatres: October 14th. While you wait, enjoy these new stills.
THE WOMAN is a disturbing tale of torture and dirty little secrets that can haunt any seemingly harmless neighborhood. The story follows a successful country lawyer who captures and attempts to "civilize" the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast in the wild for decades, thereby putting the lives of his family in extreme jeopardy.
