    First Trailer

    Can we please start a narrative to get Regina Hall as the weird acting nomination that hits all of the precursors? I’d love for this film to be this year’s Captain Fantastic.

    Regina Hall is the actual definition of underrated, she looks amazing in this film, and I will be stanning her hard core.

    This seems like the type of movie to get a random SAG nomination for Hall.

    I’ve seen it and I’m sad to report that the film a fizzer. I’ve enjoyed and admired all of director Andrew Bujalski’s films but he really misses the mark with Support the Girls. Regina Hall does what she can but it’s a film that doesn’t really know what it wants to be or what it wants to say. The actors are stranded in underwritten, unfocused roles. The film is not terrible but it adds up to nothing.

    The only standout in the cast was Haley Lu Richardson who brought some real vitality to the film which is desperately needed, though her role was rather thankless.

    Regina Hall is a first rate comedian as the patchy Scary Movies have shown us. I would have nominated her for best supporting actress for the little seen People Places Things, a dramatic role and the romantic interest for Jemaine Clement of all people. Crazy as it sounds it works beautifully and I highly recommend any fans of Regina Hall to seek the film out – she is stellar in it.

    But sorry cross Support the Girls off your list of possibilities. Its not going to happen in any capacity.

    This may be the most “mainstream” Bujalski has been, but it is something pretty special. A great, great commentary on femininity/masculinity, racial politics and identities, and capitalism. Also, it’s a fun character study of Lisa, played by Hall (who is very good, by the way).

    Anyway, it may not make a splash in terms of awards, but, “sorry,” I wish it would.
