Kajillionaire (2020)

 

A woman’s life is turned upside down when her criminal parents invite an outsider to join them on a major heist they’re planning. (IMDb)
The unique and tense settings and plot points of the film (the skimming, the leaky office home, the past-due rent, and the urgency inherent in them all) provide an easily and immediately compelling base for the poignant, equally quirky, and well-acted character/family drama that emerges (see the moving parenting classes, dark bathroom journey, gift returns). The new relationship is sweet (see Melanie to the rescue) but its romance is a bit discomforting due to the maturity/power imbalance.
8/10 (Great)
