Doc Fest: "A GIRL LIKE HER" at the Roxie

Dinner will be immediately after the movie, at Los Coyotes. Another event begins at the Victoria Theater at 7pm, so I will be heading to the restaurant as soon as A GIRL LIKE HER ends!

An affecting and timely account of unwed mothers in the 50s and 60s, most of whom were coerced to have their babies in secret maternity homes and surrender them for adoption. Director Fessler uses a light hand with the subject, compiling vintage footage to augment simply-told stories by the women themselves. The resulting narrative is a moving record of the pressure to be a “good girl” in Atomic Age society, even at the cost of losing a child.

      I bought my ticket already, and my suggestion would be for others to do so as well. I honestly don't know what the turnout will be for this event, although based on interest within our group, I expect this to be well attended.
