A Magnolia Picture, Written by Brian Sacca, Directed by Tanya Wexler.

The pitch of this film being “a female wolf of Wall Street” does ring true in many ways, but it is by no means is a rip off and is very different to that film in many ways. I would say that it is a mix of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and the ‘The Big Short’ told from the female perspective and focusing on the poorer, working class parts of American society. 

Our lead character has been a hustler her whole life, and following a spell in prison, she discovers the world of debt collecting and the huge amounts of money that can be made in this very toxic industry. Without getting too much into plot details, it doesn’t go the way you would expect and it is refreshing to see how it tackles the class struggle. 

Zoey Deutch is the absolute star, delivering an incredibly manic and charismatic lead performance that any star would be proud of. For a few years now, she has essentially been the best thing in everything she stars in, and I really hope her career continues to sky rocket. Her ‘Peggy’ is one of my favourite characters, male or female, in recent years.

Rating = 3.5/5
