M.F.A.


SYNOPSIS

Noelle, an art student struggling to find her voice, is sexually assaulted by a fellow classmate. Attempting to cope with her trauma, she impulsively confronts her attacker, leading to a violent altercation that culminates in his accidental death. Noelle tries to return to normalcy, but when she discovers that she is only one of many silenced sexual assault survivors on campus, she takes justice into her own hands. A vigilante is born - retribution is the inspiration she’s been waiting for.


REVIEWS

  • Variety.com: Francesca Eastwood delivers a tough, eye-opening performance in the lead role, and her character’s vengeance packs a cathartic punch.
  • Nofilm.school.com: Natalie Leite's rape-revenge thriller stars a riveting Francesca Eastwood seeking vigilante justice. 
  • Culturecrypt.com: On its surface, “M.F.A.” satiates appetites for slasher suspense with gruesome visual gusto to match psychological intensity percolating underneath. Though suggestive insight into cause and effect regarding all radiating crimes is where the movie really makes it mark, haunting the head with provocative questions while hitting hard in the heart with righteous rage.
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: M.F.A. is intensely engaging, thought-provoking, and also mesmerizing. Aided by Eastwood’s dynamic performance (her emotional range is uncanny), M.F.A is an empowering film that’s just as enlightening. 
  • Assholeswqatchingmovies.com: Eastwood is INTENSE in M.F.A. Like, maybe more intense than her father has ever been.
  • Cinemaslaher.com: MFA is a heartbreaking gut-punch that takes the subgenre and elevates it to another level. This one promises to be polarizing due to its unique take on such a harsh subject matter, but it’s a damn fine film.
  • Dailydead.com: Anchored by a career-making performance by Eastwood, M.F.A. shook me to my core in a way that I wasn’t expecting.
  • TheHollywoodOutsider.com: Not since The Accused has a movie perfectly captured a topic as toxic as M.F.A. does here, and no film at SXSW this year moved me as passionately to push a conversation forward as much as this one. Anchored by a genre-defying performance from Francesca Eastwood, M.F.A. deserves to land at the top of your must-see list. 
  • Weliveentertainmant.com: Franchesca Eastwood’s performance is utterly spectacular. She carries the film on her shoulders and nails every scene she’s in, while also having this odd likeability to her that isn’t typical for modern day protagonists. Even when Noelle goes into full blown violent vigilante mode, Eastwood never loses sight of who the character of Noelle is. Her quietness, minor quips of humor and all around intentions are expertly balanced by Eastwood, making herself instantly the next big thing in the industry.
