Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) is a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town. Stephanie is joined in the hunt by Emily's husband Sean (Henry Golding) in this satisfying thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.

This stylish post-modern film noir is from director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy).  The move into 'girl Gothic' doesn't mean Feig has forsaken his satirical roots, though; he has injected lethal humour into the genre, here, and the casting of Kendrick and Lively works wonderfully well.  Forsake the box sets for one night; this is better!
