Storyline

In this dark, gritty, mean-spirited, but well-made comedy-drama, Veronica (Sandra Oh) is an superficial, entitled housewife dealing with her home life. Ashley (Anne Heche) is a self-obsessed, misanthropic, artist dealing with her career and her life partner Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) who wants to raise a baby. Veronica and Ashely's paths cross at a party hosted by Veronica's husband, which the two cynical woman's long-buried rivalry comes to the surface which leads to a brutal cat-fight where Veronica ends up in the hospital in a coma. After two years, Veronica emerges from her coma to learn that both her husband and teenage son are dead, and she is broke with no friends or family. On the other hand, Ashley has become a successful and wealthy artist now married to Lisa. Veronica blames Ashley for her downfall, and after another confrontation which leads to another savage cat-fight in a vacant lot, Ashley is the one to end up in a coma and is revived after two years to find her own ...

Legion
4 March 2017 | by jeremyheadifenSee all my reviews

Cat fight is legend and legion. 3 acts. Much like the 3 Norns or the 3 Furies of fate of Norse and Greek mythology. Cycles of time and repetition. It is a black comedy. Bloody funny though. Sandra Oh and Anne Heche were perfectly cast. The script, acting and direction are great. The action scenes are INSANE. Sandra Oh and Anne Heche getting brutally violent in what are totally hardcore cat fight scenes. Not what you would expect from such acclaimed actresses. Which is why it works so well. Alicia, man I haven't seen her in a film for so long I didn't recognise her. Ariel Kavoussi was a genius addition. The 3rd story. So cute and adorable. I can see blue bunny becoming a meme. The rating is low. But If you like quality black humour, quality action, quality direction, and quality acting I recommend this. In addition, it is a female orientated film. A not too squeamish girl will love it. And it is deliberately challenging in political opinions folk hold. You are left if you are poor, right if you are rich. And how those roles rotate depending on wealth. A brutal commentary on society. Watch it. It is of the caliber of Tarantino's script for "True Romance", and with Tarantino his early films and scripts were great, or Luc Beesons "Leon", and the array of films that just break the mould of expectation. Jx.
