In Detail

1989, New Mexico. Lonely gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart) spends her free time listening to cassette tapes on quitting smoking.

The only thing keeping her in this small town is her sister Beth (Jena Malone), who is frequently beaten by her spineless husband JJ (Dave Franco). Everything changes when Jackie (Katy O’Brian) saunters into the gym: a square-jawed, leotard-wearing goddess heading to Vegas for a bodybuilding championship.

This film from director Rose Glass (‘Saint Maud’) is all about the body, what lurks within it, and what physical extremes we’ll push ourselves to for lust, love and freedom. It veers through noir to revenge thriller to pitch-black comedy via moments of magic realism. When it’s not purely thrilling and darkly funny, it’s also just so wonderfully gay. Kristen Stewart with a mullet reading a book called ‘Macho Sluts’ might just be the representation queer women have been waiting for.
