(2019 USA 109 mins)
This mystery thriller is outrageous and irresistible, an old-fashioned drama with dashes of Patricia Highsmith … It features delicious performances by Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen … and the film has such storytelling gusto … This movie rattles along with terrific energy and dash and the flashback sequences show that it’s actually far more daring and ambitious that you might expect. It’s a great duel between McKellen and Mirren. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
