Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) gives a blistering, tour-de-force performance in this searing portrait of a self-destructive rock star.
“Elisabeth Moss’s energy-devouring performance makes it almost impossible to look away.” – Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine
Writer/director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip), taking his cues from John Cassavetes, unsparingly traces the psychology of an unforgettable woman under the influence – Becky Something, the charismatic lead singer of popular ‘90s rock band, Something. Wife, mother and supremely talented performer, she is at the very top of her game and the only way is down, through a hell of drugs, booze, fights, botched recording sessions and public meltdowns. A car crash of a life is rendered in blood, sweat, tears and heartrending pathos, while a stellar ensemble cast (including Cara Delevinge, Agyness Deyn, Ashley Benson, Amber Heard, Virginia Madsen, Dan Stevens and Eric Stoltz) supports Moss’s rattling trip to the brink. (Dir. by Alex Ross Perry, 2019, USA, 134 mins., Rated R)
