There is a lot of noise about female directors right now with Wonder Woman and Patty Jenkins kicking in the door to show that this can be a girls club. There were other women directing big movies before and one of those women is Kathryn Bigelow. Bigelow is best known for her hard as nails take on movies that are usually directed by men. She doesn't flinch from things like the horrors of war and torture in Zero Dark Thirty or The Hurtlocker. She has a new movie coming out this year and there hasn't been a lot of people talking about it. It's a movie based on the civil unrest that rocked the city of Detroit in the summer of 1967. With Bigelow behind the camera we are going to see a movie that isn't going to flinch for a second when it comes to how bad things can get and how horrible human beings can be to each other. It has a fantastic cast and a new TV spot for everyone to see.
