Directed by Paul Feig

A Simple Favor centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy blogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town.

Here’s how much fun director Paul Feig is having with his newest project A Simple Favor; prior to the ending credits the film has fake text cards spelling out the future of each of the major players within this elaborate web of lies, deceit, and jealousy, as if it were a true story. Truthfully, despite how nutty A Simple Favor is, you would be forgiven for taking the trickery at face value since the real world’s already gone mad.
