This is the story of a 12-year-old girl working hard to overcome a troubling past and accept and embrace the love and possibility that now surround her. Born as Brianna to a drug-addicted ... See full summary »
A long abandoned slaughterhouse is transformed into modern lofts in a re-gentrified urban neighborhood. Soon after tenants move in they are tormented by a dark secret that has been trapped in the building for over 30 years.
Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a what she perceives as a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely costumed alter egos that re-appropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence. Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn't just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off.Written by
The "doll" mask Amy wears in the woods was inspired by the movie El Orfanato (aka J.A. Bayona's The Orphanage). See more »
In the hollowed out tree, Amy takes her bra off to put the man suit on and it is evident through the thin fabric that she is bra-less. In the next shot, her breasts are wrapped under the suit. See more »
I read what you were going for...this is how you went about it??
I like weird movies. I'm pro women. I like the idea of a movie exploring this topic.
It seems the point was just to be weird and shocking. The message intended was not received by me. All I saw was a girl who should probably be institutionalized be treated as a mentally healthy person for the whole movie. She clearly is not, and for me, that's the only message that comes across. I already was on the side of women, but if I had not been, this movie would have certainly done absolutely nothing to sway me. Some movies seem to have absolutely no merits, and this is one of them.
