CGiii Comment

Jill (Lola Kirke) works as a personal assistant to bisexual movie star Heather (Zoë Kravitz), who has pissed off a lot of people. Jill is minder, manager and friend to the increasingly paranoid Heather. Their nights in gleaming Los Angeles are mostly filled with the crackling patter of off-the-chart Bechdel-test-passing dialogue. But when Jill’s gun becomes a murder weapon, she must turn amateur sleuth to clear her name. Rocking a ‘Katharine Hepburn gone golfing’ disguise, she eavesdrops in dive bars and modernist glass houses, while a philosophy-fixated detective (John Cho) is on her tail. Mumblenoir is back! The originator – and sole practitioner – of this micro-genre, director Aaron Katz (Cold Weather), returns to it with a hugely inventive and pleasurable crime thriller. It gives classic 1940s Hollywood thrillers an Instagram shot in the arm, accompanied by a dreamy neon electro score. And it’s anchored by the dazzling Kirke (Mistress America) as a millennial Miss Marple.
