A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor is slated for release in September which is primarily considered to be a transitional month between the summer and award season. Could that trend be changing? Paul Feig’s latest project A Simple Favor ratchets up the tension with every trailer or teaser poster they release. The release is anchored by Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick in roles we aren’t accustomed to seeing them in. Is it a delicious mystery that would have worked during the summer or will we start hearing awards buzz about the film? Who knows at this point, but what’s clear is A Simple Favor looks excellent! Check out the synopsis –

A SIMPLE FAVOR, directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), 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 by Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) in this
stylish thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and
revenge.
