Three sentence movie reviews: A Simple Favor

A suspense movie with comic moments, this is also 117 minutes of thinking how awesome Blake Lively looks in a suit. I felt the script pointed me in a clear direction early on; this turned out to not be the actual direction, so when things resolved themselves it took some time for me to let go of my framework and accept what the movie was telling me. Other than that, this was a crisp, succinct fabulous movie.*

Cost: $6.00
Where watched: McMenamins St. Johns Theater with Matt, who is an Anna Kendrik fan.

*This film is more evidence of my hypothesis: Paul Fieg is the best white male director for stories about women.

  1. Sounds like it was a fun watch. It was not for me, but I loved the costuming and the red carpet fashion in the promo tour. And Henry Golden!!!
