Grrls celebrate the middle of the week on Wed June 24 with this snappy sophisticated comedy from Mindy Kaling! Drink specials available at the bar.
A late-night talk show host fears she may lose her long-running show and hires the first woman to her staff
From the pen of Mindy Kaling comes LATE NIGHT starring Emma Thompson as Katharine, a late-night host starting to lose her grip on the ratings. Hiring her first female writer, Molly (played by Kaling), Katharine is temperamental and reticent to change - but change is exactly what her all-male writer's room needs.
Inspired by Kaling's real experiences as the only female writer on The Office, LATE NIGHT is directed by another glass-ceiling shatterer, Nisha Ganatra (Transparent, Brooklyn - 99), and Emma Thompson's role was written especially for her. Acerbic, hilarious and full of the type of grrl power we can't get enough of lately, Kaling and Ganatra's film is a worthy vessel for tackling present issues of both gender and racial representation in the media sphere.
PREVIEW SCREENING: Wed 24 July at 6.45pm at Luna Leederville
