This movie is twisty and twisted
When I watched the film it really surprised me on all levels. It caught me off guard that woman can play head games with each other. This movie really entertained me because this is how we live and writing about how we feel. Every scene I thought Emily was going to harm to Stephanie till I realized they both were playing mind games. The plot of this film was unpredictable and I had an eerie feeling that something was going to happen that was twisted.
A Simple Favor that plays on Mind Games!
The mind games that Emily plays keeps me on the edge throughout the movie. I am intrigued that Blake Lively is the reincarnation of Julie Christie in her best work in the 1960s and ’70s: ruthless and charming, sexy and detached, a completely destabilizing presence to men and women alike. This is a great role for Lively.
