Danielle Macdonald is Featured in Season Two's Best Episode
So much of Easy is preoccupied with rather mundane details in the lives of thirtyish Chicago hipsters. The stories tend to be rather hackneyed and/or underdeveloped. The series is at its best, when it focuses on characters that are either older or younger than that group. In this episode, Danielle Macdonald (who shined as the star of Patti Cake$) plays a privileged teenager that is forced to attend church by her parents as punishment for breaking the house rules. Macdonald gives an understated yet winning performance in her role. What could have been a fairly predictable story has a surprising twist or two that adds meaning and depth to the material.
