Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf Comedy. 2013. USA. 83min. Director Anna Margarita Albelo
As another birthday rolls around, forty-year-old filmmaker Anna (played by the director) returns to her never-changing list of resolutions: lose twenty pounds, get a girlfriend, and direct a feature film. This year, Anna plans to knock (at least) two of those resolutions out with one stone, by writing a lesbian remake of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, devised to win the affections of her leading lady, Katia (Janina Gavankar of The L-Word). With Anna planning to act opposite her beautiful crush, her two best friends, Penelope (Go Fish’s Guinevere Turner) and Chloe (True Blood’s Carrie Preston), round out the four-person cast. Unfortunately, things don’t run smoothly, as egos begin to clash and crewmembers start sleeping with one another. Will Anna go yet-another year without accomplishing any of her resolutions? From the co-writer of Saved! (2004), Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf? is a hysterical behind-the-scenes comedy, from Reelout fave Albelo (The Turkey, Where The Girls Are).
