Black Rock – Written and Directed by Katie Aselton

Black Rock
is every woman’s worst nightmare. You go out on an adventure with friends and then things go horribly wrong and you are running for your life. Katie
Aselton gives us a film where the women Lake Bell, Kate Bosworth and Aselton herself need to work together to get out of a horrible situation. They have
nothing but their wits and guts and life long relationships to come out of what should have been a fun camping trip alive. A major triumph of girl power.
I’d take any of those women camping with me. (Melissa Silverstein)
