Se­crets and lies

Dis­cover the mys­tery at the heart of fab new movie A Sim­ple Favour – out 20 Septem­ber

Heat (UK) - - Life Hacks -

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?
