Movie Recommendation: Double Dare

Double Dare is a documentary that follows two stuntwomen as they go through the ups and downs of trying to get work and respect in the very macho world of stunts. Jeannie Epper is the veteran, having done stunts for Wonder Woman (double for Lynda Carter) and tons of movies and television shows. Zoe Bell (stunt double for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and also appears in Death Proof) is an up and coming player, having made a name for herself as a stunt double for Lucy Lawless in Xena: Warrior Princess. The doc doesn’t get too much into the history of stuntwomen in film, but it’s an interesting look nonetheless.

At the time the film was released, Zoe was injured on the Kill Bill set and was out of commission for a year, but she fully recovered and continues working to this day.

In another life I think I would have liked to have done stunts. If anything, my grandmother was convinced that I’d be great at it considering how many times I jumped off her garage roof or fell out of trees.

It’s available on Netflix Streaming Instantly.
