Calendar Girls

Whether they’re performing at an animal rescue center benefit, a church fundraiser, or a shrimp parade, the Calendar Girls give it all they’ve got. And they have a lot to give—impressive makeup; handmade costumes; elaborate dance routines; and, most notably, their unparalleled enthusiasm and sparkling personalities. They are a group of hardworking senior volunteer dancers in Florida, determined to prove that age is just a number. Through a series of intimate portraits seamlessly interwoven with dance scenes, directors Maria Loohufvud and Love Martinsen craft a loving look at these incredible women in all their 60-plus glory. They refuse to become invisible, and the camera mirrors the pride and respect they feel for their bodies while also acknowledging the struggles they’ve encountered in the process of renegotiating their identities. CALENDAR GIRLS is a joyous reminder of the importance of having a tribe: a chosen family who will lift you up, encourage you to be your most authentic self, and tell you to dance like everybody is watching. —Sundance Film Festival
