Good Girls
2019, NBC-TV, 43 min, USA, Dir: Michael Weaver

Mixing a little THELMA & LOUISE with a bit of “Breaking Bad,” Season 2 of NBC-TV’s comedy-infused drama “Good Girls” is all about its female protagonists dealing with the consequences of their criminal behavior. When we last saw Beth (Christina Hendricks), she had just returned home to find Rio (Manny Montana) in her dining room, with a gun trained on her bloodied and beaten husband, Dean (Matthew Lillard). As the last season came to a close, a shaken Beth was left holding Rio's gun as he taunted her to pull the trigger - what happens in the wake of that will have life changing consequences that ripple through the entire season for Beth and her fellow grocery store robbers Ruby (Retta) and Annie (Mae Whitman).

Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone and Keanu Reeves costar in this blood-drenched thriller, shot with Refn’s customary visual panache.
