Director Andrew Bujalski ('Funny Ha Ha', 'Computer Chess') stays true to form by never repeating himself in this touching story of workplace camaraderie. Set in Double Whammies – your local neighbourhood answer to Hooters – we follow twenty four hours in the restaurant’s life, as beers are slung, crop tops are short and the drama of everyday life makes for high stakes.
Focusing on characters that other films would overlook, and imbuing their experiences with rich humanity, Support the Girls creates a heart-warming story of female friendship and modern work. An amazing ensemble cast (including 'Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and 'Columbus’s Haley Lu Richardson) make for a winning, compassionate comedy.

★★★★ "Warm comedy-drama." - Wendy Ide, The Observer
★★★★ "A remarkably compassionate portrait of American womanhood that inspires hope without denying reality" - Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
★★★★ "A scrappy but soulful delight." - Beth Webb, Empire
