A day in the life of a Sports Bar (with curves) manager...
This is Regina Hall's film, she breathes life into her character that should have taken Andrew Bujalski breath away. Personable, patient, warm-hearted, kind-hearted and diplomatic...that is...until. She is the epitome of the perfect employee...that is...until!
Expect the usual subjects in a bar of this ilk...but, with one standout, Lea DeLaria as Bobo. She - basically - plays herself, a woman loving lesbian...which she does very well [unsurprisingly]...but, when given such a crisp script, she flies off the screen.
As slight as it may seem, Support the Girls is a richly written story about loyalty and freindship, in and out of the workplace. Possibly, a slow-burning crowd-pleaser...it's a lovely little film that deserves a wider audience.
Lisa Conroy is general manager at a highway-side 'sports bar with curves', Double Whammies. She nurtures and protects her employees 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?
