Selected Press

“The Force and the Fury is focused on developing interesting characters that you want to know more about. It features excellent performances from Aris Judson and Deborah Lee  Smith”

“The film is a strong addition to films that embrace representation, with Smith’s powerful and nuanced portrayal of a female Sith. Satterlund created a character that turns common Star Wars rules on its head by making the villain a female, something that has only been done previously on a small scale.”
