Set in the underworld of debt-collecting and follows the homegrown hustler Peg Dahl, who will do anything to escape Buffalo, NY. (IMDb)
Deutch is a dynamo, eating up every scene with the fervor of a Buffalonian going at a plate of wings, perfecting the compelling Peg in all her manic suit, sneaker, and half-bun glory (the details are just delicious–see the long socks + high heels; sign-tap leaving prison). Fortunately, the film doesn’t fumble its fantastic lead, serving up a simple and steady crime-dramedy script with just the right amount of good feels and directorial spice (the slow motion run across town was a great intro).
7.5/10 (Really Good)
