Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: "Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?"Written by

Very beginning of the film, she's walking on the sidewalk, right side of the street, with the traffic. When she notices the deer across the street, she's heading in the opposite direction. After the deer, she's walking in her original direction again. See more »

No offense, Miss Meadows, but you do tend to over-accessorize.

I did not really know what to expect on my outing with Miss Meadows. The cover art is probably a bit misleading as it is more of a day in the life of Miss Meadows rather than a woman going out of her way to kill men type film.
Katie Holmes did a perfect job as Miss Meadows I think the casting was spot on. It was a delight to hear here use of "proper" English which contrasted well with the run down neighborhood in which she occupies. Katie did a great job displaying the playful and innocent Miss Meadows.
The film touches on many things including - love, optimism, being naive, mental illness, relationships developing despite mental illness.
Miss Meadows comes along as a delightful character with no-nonsense justice served. A good escapist film. The word play is akin to a Wes Andersen movie (think Grand Budapest Hotel)
So pick up your top hat, grab a picnic basket and go on a stroll with the delightful Miss Meadows.
