Documentary Review | Double Dare
Double Dare (PN 1995.96. S7 D68 2005) is a thrilling action-packed documentary describing the lives of two Hollywood stuntwomen: veteran legend Jeannie Epper and talented newcomer Zoë Bell. Epper is struggling to find work because of her age, while Bell has trouble finding work because she is not yet well known. The two meet and help each other overcome obstacles so that they can do what they truly love: stunts.
The actions performed by these women are truly amazing feats and they prove it is not easy work. Double Dare does an excellent job of describing not just the physical demands of the job, but the difficulties stunt women have fitting into a male-dominated profession. This documentary was truly inspiring and I would recommend it to anyone curious to know what goes on behind the scenes of Hollywood movies.
