The Love Witch

6:00pm

Location: 

Radcliffe College Room, Schlesinger Library, 3 James Street, Cambridge MA

“The Love Witch” casts an intense spell, which simply must be seen to be believed. Samantha Robinson stars in a surreal performance as Elaine, a self-described love witch currently driving through California on a hunt for The One. Elaine is a femme fatale for the history books—instantly iconic even as she appears plucked from the gauzy filters of another era. “The Love Witch” is feminist high camp: outspoken and outrageous in its intent, familiar and fun in its play with pastiche but absolutely surprising. It is also a testament to a new voice in feminist cinema and its fairy tales.
