Political thriller for our times
20 January 2019 | by alieburchSee all my reviews

A well crafted thriller that feels very old school in the way the story unfolds. It's a slow burn with a powerhouse ensemble. Tika Sumpter and Jamie Lee Curtis are powerhouses. The film also genuinely feels like the world we live in--filled with women, people of color, and LBGTQ+ representation. Would highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a thriller with substance.
