Sandra Oh and Anne Heche in "CATFIGHT" (Opens March 3rd) Watch the Trailer!


Starring Sandra Oh, Anne Heche and Alicia Silverstone

"An A-plus B movie with a cruel edge. To any movie producers who think women over 40 can only play moms, look out: Heche and Oh are coming for you."
- Amy Nicholson, MTV NEWS

"A weird, wild, invigorating satire."
- Stephanie Zacharek, TIME

"A ferociously cathartic smackdown... [with] the can't-look-away thrill of two performances touched by madness.”

"Deliciously funny."
- Brandon Harris, VICE

Synopsis: One-time college pals Veronica (Sandra Oh) and Ashley (Anne Heche) run into each other at a party. The women, now in their forties and having not seen each other since school, find that their lives have taken radically different paths. Ashley is barely scraping by as a painter of politically charged canvases, while Veronica is married to a wealthy businessman who's about to profit hugely off yet another US-led war in the Middle East.

Within minutes of their reunion, a rivalry is revived, old wounds are torn open, and a Manhattan stairwell becomes home to a woman-on-woman brawl the likes of which are seldom seen outside of martial-arts epics. And now the gloves are off. The new feature from writer-director Onur Tukel takes a set-up that in most films would lead to a heartwarming story of female friendship — and uses it instead as the springboard for an outrageously madcap black comedy.
