A Simple Favour (15)
5th October 2018 - 11th October 2018
When her best friend goes missing, Stephanie finds herself falling deeper into a mystery that will make her question everything she ever knew about the beautiful and charming Emily. This modern nod to film noir stars Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.
Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) isn’t the sort of person you’d call ‘glamorous’. A mum vlogger, the excitement in her life comes vicariously through her best friend, Emily (Blake Lively).
Emily is everything Stephanie feels like she isn’t – glamourous, elegant, charming, alluring…
But everything changes when one day, Stephanie asks her for something.
“I need just a simple favour.”
Emily disappears and Stephanie is pulled into a twisted mystery. Alongside Emily’s husband, Sean (Henry Golding), she tries to peel apart the spider’s web and find out the truth.
Secrets, scandals, and sinister revelations spill out of the void. The more she searches, the further Stephanie seems to get from finding out the answer to the question everyone’s asking.
What happened to Emily?
Paul Feig (Ghostbusters: Answer the Call) directs this post-modern nod to film noir, which captures all the mystery and drama of the beloved genre through a new lens. Anna Kendrick (the Pitch Perfect franchise) stars as the average and frustrated Stephanie, alongside Blake Lively (The Shallows), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), and Linda Cardellini (Daddy’s Home 2).
