Synopsis
Mary Woronov, (EATING RAOUL, DEATH RACE 2000) stars in THE NEW WOMEN, a mutation of George Cukor’s 1939 classic THE WOMEN. The result is a post-apocalyptic black-comedy adventure with sharp performances, a keen ear for dialogue, and an encyclopedic knowledge of B-Film history. Lisa LaStrada (Woronov) pines over the infidelities of her husband, who is having an affair with her nemesis, Virgina Van Upp until a strange rainstorm causes everyone on earth to fall asleep. The women wake up to a still world. Men remain comatose, getting erections every forty-five minutes. Soon, the food is running out, and the men dehydrate and die. There is no hope in the isolated town of Lacuna. Lisa hits the road to follow a shaky radio signal that advertises Elysium, a new society for women by women. Will the new-age hippy chicks and angry, jilted bikers stand in the way of true happiness? Or is Elysium, too, another impossible dream?

Synopsis : Down on the farm there is a cow, a pitchfork, a haggard man, a shed, an evil wife, and a bucket-headed robot. Not to mention a lust that will test the limits of marriage and metal fatigue.
