Rosamund Pike is back up to her strutting and deep-voiced cooing and general sociopathy in the trailer for Netflix’s I Care A Lot — but this time Gone Girl is gay, girl. (Is that the worst lede I have ever written? Maybe, but I’m leaving it because it made me laugh.) J Blakeson’s dark comedy thriller, which premiered to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, stars Pike as Marla Grayson, a con artist who scams wealthy elderly people out of their life savings. Her partner in crime and also her partner-partner is Eiza González’s Fran. She seems unstoppable until she overplays her hand and ends up grifting a woman with crime boss pals.
When I asked Kayla if she’d review this, she responded “yes!” in less than a nanosecond. It drops on February 19th.
