Paul Feig’s A Simple Favor is inspired – from its Saul Bass-like question mark poster (above) to its double and triplecrosses – by the breezy sophisticated mystery-thrillers of the ‘60s and early ‘70s.
‘Five days ago, Emily went missing. I’m realizing I don’t know her as well as I thought I did,’ Mommy vlogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) – who is trying to find out what happened to her best friend (Blake Lively) in A Simple Favor.
I’m not sure exactly what elements of the trailer sparked the thought, but does it make the film seem very Hitchcockian.
A Simple Favor – directed by Paul Feig – opens on September 18th.
In one of the weirder studio emails I ever received, the studio asked us to not call Director Marc Forster’s latest film All I See Is You a “Thriller.” No it’s an drama or an “obsessive love story.” So I’m going to go with the later description. Or better yet, let me make up my own, it’s an impressionistic art piece that tries really hard to be a compelling movie worth watching.
The Age of Adaline is an old-fashioned romance – in every sense of the word. There’s a love story, of course, but also adventure and the two weave together in unexpectedly delightful ways.
Adaline Bowman was 1906’s New Year’s baby. When she was twenty-nine, a confluence of events made her immortal. She married, had a daughter and was widowed by the end of World War II and narrowly avoided becoming a lab specimen. For decades, she moved and changed her identity every ten years. Then, she met Ellis.
