Director: Paul Feig
Stars: Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding
A woman seeks to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of her best friend.
“A simple favor” is a very clever film, enhanced by two fine actresses, Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. Most movies don’t give female characters much respect, but this one is different because gives the two lead characters plenty of power and substance. Especially Blake Lively finally achieves the status of actress with a delicious role seemingly written for her.
The film it keeps you on the edge of your seat and, even at the end, you still can’t believe the twists and turns that play out. At the same time the movie refuses to take itself seriously, and is an entertaining film because of that. Paul Feig is one of the few men who know how to direct women and he does it perfectly. A very enjoyable movie.
