About the film

Lisa Conroy is general manager at a highway-side 'sports bar with curves', Double Whammies. She nurtures and protects her employees fiercely - but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction... Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it?

What people are saying

Hall is a revelation (dominant in nearly every scene), and the rooftop climax is fittingly cathartic.

Kevin Maher

Times (UK)

Like Lisa herself, Support the Girls is generous, gentle, and not to be taken for granted.
