September 12th Just Got Really Busy

Note to distributors and producers. It's hard enough for one female focused film to be successful but now there are three films targeted at women opening on September 12th. Sounds like trouble to me.

The busy September 12th now includes Towelhead, a coming of age story of an Arab-American girl sent to Houston to live with her restrictive father. Also, opening is The Duchess with Keira Knightley as the Duchess of Devonshire and the previously mentioned The Women written and directed by Diane English.

Will this glut prevent any of them from breaking out?
