SXSW 2017 - Movie #27
It's like a good mixture of Holes, The Hunger Games, and Thelma & Louise.
Also, the main actress looks so much like Daisy Ridley, I had to look up to make sure they weren't twins.

Annapolis Film Festival #1
Going into my first movie for a Film festival was very exciting, I did't know what to expect. I'm happy The Archer was the first festival movie I saw, I had a fun time watching it, except for a few things. If it wasn't rushed into a short movie, I think it could have been great. Lack of character development upset me, it could have been interesting to watch. But Bailey Nobles character is such a badass and she looks a lot like Daisy Ridley.
I can't wait to go to more festival movies!

★★★★½ review by Logan on Letterboxd
This is good little action survival thriller that I adore for being super gay when other movies would have used it as subtext without having any explicitly gay moments. Plot is short and sweet, and the characters are really well done. I lost my mind at so many moments that were too goddamn gay for me to handle.
Between this and Tomb Raider I think Lesbians With A Bow & Arrow might be my new favorite genre.
★★★½ review by Rob Trench on Letterboxd
An awesome, pulse-pounding thriller with a great lead performance from Bailey Noble.
