Girlfight

Michelle Rodriguez came in like a hurricane.

Twenty years down the road, she’s established herself as a go-to actress for rough-and-tumble roles, with stints in everything from The Fast and the Furious series to Lost.

But back when I got this film on a VHS screener at Videoville, I had no clue who Rodriguez, or director Karyn Kusama, were.

That changed fast, as the tale of a Brooklyn girl raging through life, played out.

It’s a film which is rough around the edges, raw, and absolutely riveting – just like Rodriguez herself.

See it again, or for the first time.
