Secrets and lies
Discover the mystery at the heart of fab new movie A Simple Favour – out 20 September
H ow well do you know your best friend, and how far would you go for them? That’s the dilemma posed by A Simple Favour. Swanky PR executive Emily (Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively) asks stay-at-homemom vlogger Stephanie (Pitch
Perfect’s Anna Kendrick) for “a simple favour”: will she pick up her young son from school? The two mothers’ sons are mates, and eager-to-please Stephanie is always happy to help Emily – in her eyes, they are besties.
But then Emily vanishes without trace – not even her hot novelist husband Sean (Crazy
Rich Asians’ Henry Golding) has any clue where she is. As Stephanie’s recipe vlog mutates into a true-crime mystery, she gets ever deeper involved in her mission to uncover the truth: who is Emily really, and what has happened to her?
