#SUNDANCE: “THE 40 YEAR OLD VERSION”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
In the midst of struggling with the fact she’s single and a struggling artist at the age of 40, playwright Rahda finds a new passion: Rapping.
Writer-Director and star Rahda Blank graces us with this hilarious and thoughtful film about the pressure society puts on women when they get to a certain age. It’s beautifully shot in black and white and the Script is loaded with quick wit on racism and ageism. As soon as the credits roll one knows they have watched something truly special and that Radha Blank is a force to be reckoned with.
