I was scrolling through Netflix and found this gem, and I honestly need all of you to watch it right now so we can have a discussion on it.
Good Girls is about three middle class women (played by Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman, and Retta) who are in various stages of needing money. They decide to rob a grocery store, thinking that there will be enough for them to get a bit more back on their feet, and move on. Regrettably, this store was laundering money for a local gang, and the girls get way more than they were expecting.
Not only do they get more money, they also have the gang to deal with. What will Beth, Annie, and Ruby do when they have to decide between death and working for a gang? It’s a drama comedy hybrid, that lives up to both labels. I had a lot of fun watching it.
There are some themes that get dark, my boyfriend has described it as similar to Breaking Bad. I thought it was a lot of fun, with some twists that definitely took me by surprise.
As much as I loved watching this show, I adored the soundtrack. They put together a phenomenal set of songs, and I believe they were all by female artists.
You can watch Good Girls on Netflix or iTunes, and I highly recommend it. It’s not for everyone (again, there is gang violence, and sexual violence), and I definitely don’t suggest kids watch it. But for those of you that do watch it, enjoy!
