“You know, even though I had to wear that stupid back brace and you were kind of fat, we were still totally cutting edge.”
Having a ball in their Venice Beach apartment and honing their DIY style, lifelong friends Romy and Michele are totally fine with their boyfriend-free and barely-employed existence. That is until their high school reunion creeps up on them, forcing them to reassess not only the women they have become, but what their roles were back then. Thus they half-bake new personas—as the inventors of Post-Its, they are sure to gain the respect of their former classmates, right? Even funnier than you remember, Romy and Michele is made strong with Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino as the leads, supported by the contrastingly dark-humored, chain-smoking Janeane Garofalo.
In addition to the screening, we will salute DIY fashion and take a look at some of the other achievements of costume designer Mona May.
