Danielle Panabaker attended the World Premiere of her latest film, ‘Girls Against Boys’, last Friday, March 9th at the Alamo Draft House Ritz Theater in Austin, Texas. The film had a successful debut (Full theater, A LOT of people were unable to gain access), being the opening Midnighter of the 2012 South By Southwest Film Festival.
The Midnighters section of SXSW got off to a provocative start with Friday night’s screening of the stylishly filmed “Girls Against Boys.” Directed by Austin Chick, the film follows the deadly exploits of a couple of young New York women after one of them is raped. The early rape scene takes place off-screen, perhaps a nod to feminist sentiments. But the violence becomes more graphic as the women seek vengeance against the rapist and other men. Both lead actresses, Danielle Panabaker and Nicole LaLiberte, are excellent. But LaLiberte has the far showier part as a psychopath nonpareil. Chick is perhaps best known for 2002′s “XX/XY,” starring Mark Ruffalo and Maya Stange. (Screens again 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, Alamo Ritz; 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Violet Crown).
