Key West NOW Women’s Film Fest Third of Five Great Films March 15th 

By Women, About Women, FOR Everyone

Key West – The Third Annual Women’s Film Festival will screen the third of its five great films on March 15th at the Tropic. “Trouble with Angels” is a light-hearted comedy starring Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell at the peak of their careers. Directed by Ida Lupino, who became an influential director and producer n the Hollywood studio system after her decades of acting, this is a romp with mischievious girls in a convent school. And there’s a surprise ending!

The Festival will continue for the two remaining Wednesdays in March. On March 22, French New Wave icon Agnès Varda’s most famous film “Cleo from 5 to 7” tells the story of  a young French pop star waits biopsy results in Paris in the 1950s. Then the festival ends March 29th with “The Janes.” This HBO documentary about the Abortion Counseling Service in Chicago tracks a group of women who provided thousands of safe abortions in the late 60s and early 70s, before Roe was decided. Two of the original Janes, now in their 80s, will join the Tropic audience by Zoom for an important discussion after the screening.

The Key West Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) promotes woman’s rights to reproductive health care, fairness in education and employment, freedom from violence, justice for LGBTQIA citizens and life without racism. The Tropic Cinema is an award-winning, independent, non-profit theater showing popular, classic, foreign, regional and experimental films.

All showings begin at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at or at the door. All screenings are in the spacious Carper Theater.
