It’s September, so fall is basically here! We don’t know about you, but we absolutely love a great mystery read-and watch-in the fall. Crisp leaves, warm sweaters, and murder…feels like a winning combination. This month, we’ll be taking a look at what keeps this genre topping the bestseller lists over and over again. We’re talking capers, locked rooms, Nordic thrillers and more. Strap in, and don’t forget your magnifying glass.
We’re easing into the month with a film that was released to almost no fanfare: the 2018 adaptation of A Simple Favor. With star power like Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively at the helm, one would have expected more talk about this quirky whodunit, and this week we’re giving it some love and attention. Showcasing brilliant costumes, a vibrant setting and a super sweet Parisian soundtrack, A Simple Favor is Desperate Housewives with an updated twist. Take a ride with us, and see what a determined mommy vlogger can accomplish when she puts her mind to it.
