I saw the preview for A Simple Favor while I watching the Incredibles 2 with my mom and littlest short person at Studio Movie Grill. I added it to my list of must-sees and was fascinated by the fun and possibly murder mystery element of the preview.
I went home and dug a little deeper. It is based on the same titled book by Darcey Bell about a mom blogger and her best friend, but I have a feeling that is more than that. I hope the movie digs into female friendships, the power of a good story and what we do when confronted with a challenge. It’s definitely going to be a conversation starter.
Have you seen A Simple Favor directed by Paul Feig with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively yet?
Here’s the blurb from the press release:
A SIMPLE FAVOR, directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy blogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town.
Sounds deliciously simple right?
And positively right up my “Murder She Wrote”-loving alley.
A murder mystery. A sexy romance. A forbidden triangle. Modern characters and a kinda convoluted tale of modern motherhood.
Count me in.
Hopefully, this weekend.
