Warrior Woman

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Part time Central Maine resident Karen Young’s truly amazing performance as Alice, a teacher, wife, and breast cancer survivor, is the center of this unforgettable American independent film set and shot in New Mexico. Alice begins having potent dreams (a mute young girl, chanting women, snakes, knives) that spill into her waking life, combining with fearful flashbacks from her cancer treatment. As the dreams suck her in, Alice helps one of her ESL students, a young Vietnamese woman, flee an abusive husband, and consequently becomes entangled with an offbeat group of women who, in combination with the dreams, help her to come to grips with the anger and fear she has been dealing with. A MIFF hit! Unrated. 97 Min.
