This month's film: 

Bombshell:  The Hedy Lamarr Story

Runtime: 1hour 28 minutes
Year 2017

Austrian actress Hedy Lamarr fled an oppressive marriage to create a name for herself as one of Hollywood's top leading ladies in the 1940s. Behind the glamour and sex appeal, though, was a talented and inquisitive inventor who created a radio system that is now considered the basis of Bluetooth technology.

Audience Award winner at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival.

"Superb... Recognition (and compensation) proved elusive in Lamarr's lifetime, but in this marvelous documentary, a brilliant woman...finally gets her due." -Chuck Wilson, The Village Voice
