Synopsis

Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely costumed alter egos that re-appropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him – but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.

Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn’t just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off.

Buzz

“Felt is a moodily disturbing character study of a besieged woman for whom art is engagement and coping mechanism, but also conversely a source of alienation and even a weapon.” – Los Angeles Times

“This strange, quiet film takes social narratives about romance and gender and upends them, often seeming like one thing until it’s another.” – Village Voice

“Whether we like or dislike movies like it is ultimately irrelevant compared to the responses they induce in their audiences. So consider this a guarantee: You won’t walk away from Felt unmoved.” – Paste Magazine
