Deniz Gamze Ergüven completed this script around 2011, and intended for it to be her feature film debut, however she was unable to get financing for her project. A friend suggested she try a smaller, more intimate film, which became Mustang (2015), an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. The considerable attention gained from that film allowed her to finally get this film off the ground. See more »
Millie Dunbar drive a wasted Volvo 760 estate . It is very hard to believe, what a car debuted in 1985, can be in such condition in 1991. Also, it is probably too expensive for main character, even if car was made in 1985. See more »
Very Intense and Powerful Film, Stronger Than Detroit!
I see the two low reviews for this latest film starring Halle Berry and Daniel Craig and I am a bit puzzled. I watched this tonight with the wife, who thought it was quite loud and startling and because of that and the images, it's a strong film. During the chaos, just sitting in the theatre, I felt the pressure of the scene and it definitely rattled me. While I thought it ended too quickly, I really enjoyed it and would definitely buy on Blu-ray once released. For my time and $20 spent seeing it with my wife, it was well worth it. As much as I appreciate Bigelow's work, this in my opinion, was more visceral and more honest than Detroit.
