PIXIE (2020)

To avenge her mother's death, Pixie masterminds a heist but must flee across Ireland from gangsters, take on the patriarchy, and choose her own destiny. Producer and (turned newb) director Barnaby Thompson directed the film, and his cast perfectly. Newb (third writing credit, first being a short) Preston Thompson (Barnaby's son) came up with a great story that was fluid, perfectly paced and the just-right runtime at 93 mins. It had audacity, humor, suspense, action, with some far fetched moments and plenty of charm. I enjoyed the shoot-em-up straight out of the Tarantino playbook scenes that were unexpected and hilarious. Sure the story isn't anything original, but its infectious humor just may catch your mood, and give you that much-needed smile and lift. What really elevated this film was Olivia Cooke, who was sheer perfection in her character. Casting overall was excellent, and it was great to see Colm Meaney and Alec Baldwin. The score and cinematography were on point and the stunning Irish landscapes were incredible. The Thompson father and son duo should be very proud with their result, especially being novice filmmakers. It's a fun and funny film I really enjoyed and will probably see again. Ignore all the Trump's Baldwin haters and the stuck-up religious freaks who can't understand parody and humor. This little gem was awesome in every way. It's a well deserved 9/10 from me.
