Karyn Kusama: From indie hit Girlfight to studio big swing Aeon Flux and back again with new thriller The Invitation
Director Karyn Kusama came onto the world stage with Sundance darling Girlfight, which also introduced audiences to powerhouse Michelle Rodriguez. Kusama went directly from indie cinema to big budget studio endeavor Aeon Flux, starring Charlize Theron.
Here, the Girls on Film, Roth Cornet and Miri Jedeikin sit down with Kusama to talk about the benefits and challenges of finding success young, what it's like to grapple with the "film by committee" studio system, bringing out Megan Fox's comedy chops in Jennifer's Body, and returning to her indie roots with her new thriller The Invitation.

The Invitation will be in theaters, via Drafthouse, and VOD on April 8.
