Low key entertainment with a strong female lead
2 August 2017 | by SkuDaSee all my reviews

I knew nothing about this movie when it popped up on my Netflix ... and I'm happy to say that it grabbed my interest right away. The story line isn't very novel at all, but what makes the movie worthwhile is a very unusually unorthodox female lead, brilliantly portrayed by Jessica Williams. She is feisty and fun and totally unhinged at the same time.

Sure, there are flaws to be found on this movie in retrospect but all in all I can recommend it.
