Excellent, sophisticated, a modern classic - The Good Girl review by EN

Spoiler Alert
26/09/2017

Miguel Arteta's movies are always a delight; quirky, original, entertaining, never predictable, a joy to watch. I can't wait for his latest, 'Beatriz at Dinner' starring Salma Hayek (as of Sept 2017, not yet released in the UK! Very frustrating). His movies remind me of the work of Lisa Cholodenko, Sarah Polley and Rebecca Miller: sophisticated, humorous but never cynical, quirky without becoming annoyingly whimsical, in short intelligent film-making for discerning audiences who don't appreciate being treated like morons, while still wishing to be delighted, stimulated and entertained.

This movie ticks all those boxes as well as giving us one of Jennifer Aniston's best performances; an often - very unfairly - underestimated actress, here Aniston tempers her comic genius in a nuanced performance that doesn't shy from showing the ugliness of feeling trapped in a loveless, listless marriage. Jake Gyllenhaal as her young lover is superb, no wonder he rose to the ranks of Hollywood royalty soon after this film. Definitely recommended.
