This screening took place on Monday, January 25, 2021 at 8:00pmYukon Arts Centre

Nothing in Cassie's life is what it appears to be -- she's wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she's living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs from the past...

This tart Oscar-tipped dark feminist comedy starring Carey Mulligan and directed by the creator of Killing Eve offers an intoxicating revenge plot against bad men.  A woman named Cassie pretends to be a "drunken vixen" to test men's good intentions. The ones who try to take advantage of her inability to consent are in store for an epic reckoning.

"I just adored this film. I think it's incredibly smart." - Amy Nicholson, FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
