A Vigilante, directed by Sarah Daggar-Nickson, is about a domestic abuse survivor, Sadie (Olivia Wilde), who starts helping other women escape the situation she was once in.
It’s an underrated and, as far as I’m aware, not very well-known movie, but it’s perfect to finish Women’s Month.
I enjoyed it for its simplicity and for being so rewarding to see women-beaters taking a beating themselves.
The film is gloomy, fitting its theme. But, sometimes, it gets too slow and silent, harming the flow.
Sadie is practically the only character we can attach to, and she’s a great character. Olivia Wilde is perfect in her portrayal of this woman.
I love how Sadie is always moving between these remote and beautiful locations. I mean beautiful for my taste, I know these places are not exactly a choice for tourists.
It’s a very simple movie, but enjoyable and satisfying… I don’t even know if still trendy to say satisfying, I don’t give a f__k.
