A Simple Favour

Dir. Paul Feig. USA, 2018. 1h 57m. Starring Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Eric Johnson, Jean Smart, Sarah Baker, Henry Golding.

Straight-laced vlogger Stephanie’s world is turned upside down when the glamorous fellow-mum she recently befriended goes missing. A chic and stylish mystery noir packed with wicked humour and potent performances from Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

‘As intoxicating as the mid-afternoon martinis swilled by the two central characters.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘Director Paul Feig combines flippant, off-beat humour with plot twists you would expect to find in the most morbid and feverish film noir.’ ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
