A Simple Favour is a great film with a very talented cast.

Blake Lively was a stand out for me. I just loved her character, Emily, and how she portrayed her. Stylish, confident and funny.  And Anna Kendrick was perfect for the role of Stephanie, a totally relatable single Mum. They had a great on screen chemistry throughout the film.

The movie took the thriller genre and added comedy in a subtle way and I felt that the two different genres worked really well together.

The story keeps you guessing the whole way through and just when you think you’ve figured it out there’s another twist. It was funny, dark, exciting and engaging right up until the end. Definitely not just a movie to see with your girlfriends. I think everyone would enjoy this one! And I’m sure I’m not the only one who left the movie wanting to go home and have a martini…
