Movie Info

Bringing a feminine perspective to the debate that's currently raging across the nation, Cathryne Czubek's new feature documentary A GIRL AND A GUN reveals how women have embraced an object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity. Filmed throughout the U.S., the film delves deep into the psyche of the American gun world to show the complex relationship between American women and their guns. Penetrating far beyond Hollywood's hyper-sexualized femme fatales, A GIRL AND A GUN candidly explores the modern American woman through intimate portraits of several women that revolve around fundamental issues of preservation, power, feminism and violence. Punctuated with archival footage and expert commentary to provide a rich historical and cultural context, the film presents a complex and empowering perspective on a deadly serious issue. The intimate and graphic portrayals in A GIRL AND A GUN are of women who've carved themselves a place in the gun community, but their personal journeys in one way or another reflect the same issues every woman faces today. A GIRL AND A GUN will not end the nation's decisive battle over the legality or availability of guns, but it does give voice to those American women, young and old, who have been affected by firearms or believe in the right to responsibly and legally possess firearms.(c) First Run Featuresmore

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Director Cathryne Czubek's well-researched, incredibly lively chronicle of the way guns are marketed to, coveted by, and portrayed with women is a vital glimpse into a cultural phenomenon.

No matter how moving or morally ambivalent these women are, Ms. Czubek seems content to hop from one anecdote to another, unwilling to shape her findings into a larger investigation or deeper analysis.

The subject is women and firearms. What about women and firearms? Well, did you know that some women use firearms? It's true!

Since the conversation is unfocused and there's no real thesis, we get a girl and a gun but not really a movie.

Top Critic

There is little to this film that isn't very obvious and sometimes even oblivious.

Film School Rejects

A Girl and a Gun seems designed to encourage the growing number of American ladies packing heat, but it's practically reverse propaganda...
