MEET THE CHARACTERS
CAREY MULLIGAN IS CASSIE
A Twitter storm erupted after Carey challenged a Variety review implying she wasn’t sexy enough to play this role. In fact, the film merely confirms the Suffragette star as an actress of great range.
BO BURNHAM IS RYAN
6ft 5in Bo is perhaps best known as the writer-director of ace US indie flick Eighth Grade, and before that as a Youtube star and stand-up comedian. Here, he plays Cassie’s love interest.
LAVERNE COX IS GAIL
Laverne has earned four nominations for her role in prison TV series Orange Is The New Black, and is a prominent equal rights advocate. Gail is the manager of the coffee shop where Cassie works.
ALISON BRIE IS MADISON
Alison stars as Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder in Netflix series GLOW. Madison is a college pal who provides vital evidence in Cassie’s plot to get even with the men who ruined her best friend’s life.
CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE IS NEIL
Neil may think of himself as a nice guy, but that doesn’t prevent him trying to take advantage of Cassie when he believes her to be drunk. Christopher is best known as “Mclovin” in Superbad.
