Every Monday, sixty-year-old Felix Funicello sets up a new film for his weekly club at an old-fashioned cinema. But one night, he is confronted by an unanticipated guest- the ghost of Lois Weber.

As these magical movies play before him, Felix begins to understand how a trio of unforgettable women have shaped his history. An evocative and kaleidoscopic convergence of Hollywood, feminism and family secrets, I'll Take You There is a radiant homage to a single life and to the resiliency, strength and power of women.
