Screen Media Films presents a gripping and well-made revenge thriller, Girl, starring Bella Thorne and Mickey Rourke. Writer/director Chad Faust keeps the audience in suspense as they follow a brave and reckless woman chased by her violent past.

A young woman (Bella Thorne) returns to her small hometown to exact revenge on her abusive father. She discovers someone murdered him the day before. As the girl searches for answers, she soon finds herself prey to a sinister sheriff (Mickey Rourke). She then uncovers a family legacy more disturbing than she’d imagined.

Here are 5 reasons why you should watch Girl:

5) Bella Thorne!

Bella Thorne delivers a top-notch performance that demonstrates her talents at full scale. After watching her comedic turns in the Babysitter sequels and The Duff, I was unprepared to see how raw, exposed, and vulnerable she could be. Thorne captures how heartbroken her character really is through these pained expressions.

4) Mickey Rourke!

When you want the perfect antagonist, you always bet on Mickey Rourke! As the Sheriff, Rourke is such a towering figure of menace. When the Sheriff and Girl are in the same scene, the camera focuses on Rourke’s overpowering size and boisterous personality. 

3) The Cinematography!

Cinematographer Kristofer Bonnell picks these wide and sharp lens that captures a small town in the midst of an economic collapse. The inhabitants of this small town live in rundown houses, dives, and abandoned buildings. Because everyone living here is financially strapped, viewers will understand why money is their primary motivation.

2) The Direction!

Writer/director Chad Faust focuses on the themes of family and childhood trauma in this revenge drama. Faust examines what happens when children carry the burden, the sins, of their parents. This is the part of the narrative that really sticks out to me. 

1) A Gritty Thriller! 

Bella Thorne has such a great character arc in this gritty revenge thriller. Thorne’s strong performance is a major reason to watch Girl.

Girl will be available in select theaters on November 20th, 2020, available for VOD on November 24th, 2020.
