A heinous crime tests the complex relationship between a tenacious personal assistant and her Hollywood starlet boss. As the assistant travels across Los Angeles to unravel the mystery, she must stay one step ahead of a determined policeman and confront her own understanding of friendship, truth and celebrity.
Jill LeBeau (Lola Kirke) handles everything for movie star Heather Anderson (Zoë Kravitz) as her assistant. Heather feels unsafe and borrows Jill's gun. One day, Jill finds Heather killed with the gun beside her. Police detective Edward Ahn (John Cho) investigates and Jill becomes the prime suspect.
Lola Kirke is a little flat. The premise requires high-tension and dire paranoia. The suspects aren't laid out too well. Other than the paparazzi and the fan, I don't know who are the other characters. It does have a nice style with the noirish L.A. landscape. It's also problematic to not have the full forensic understanding of the crime scene. Ahn lays down selected evidences but it doesn't seem like a full picture. I just figured it'd be a good time to ask for a lawyer. I do really like the twist but the tension is almost drained out of the situation pretty quickly. This seems to be driving on a certain level and never gets on a higher gear.
