"Emily the Criminal" Sundance Review (2022, John Patton Ford)
I looked forward to seeing Emily the Criminal, because I knew that Aubrey Plaza pushes the boundaries. While it is no Black Bear or Ingrid Goes West, it has a solid supporting cast that includes Gina Gershon, Theo Rossi, and Megalyn Echikunwoke. It also marks Plaza's first starring role with her Evil Hag Productions.
Such an exciting time to be alive as Plaza waltzes through the movie macing and tasing anyone who gets in her way. The movie was rooted in reality as Plaza's Emily is burned with student debt and has trouble getting to the place where she needs to be. All in all, despite having some reservations, it was a fun watch.
