Thursday Movie Picks: Female Investigators
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is Female Investigators! The rules specify they can be police, or private. I kept thinking of TV shows that fit this theme, but movies were a bit tougher. Here's what I came up with.
1) Lost Girls - The mother of a missing girl essentially turns private detective in this when the police don't do enough. This is based on a true story and is absolutely heartbreaking.
2) Destroyer - Nicole Kidman gives an excellent performance as a police detective that reconnects with an undercover mission from her past. I had some issues with the film overall, but she was amazing in it.
3) Every Secret Thing - This is one of my favorite Laura Lippman books, and Elizabeth Banks plays a detective trying to solve a kidnapping.
