I’m a big fan of Lily Collins. I find her to be a talented actress, and while I really have no inclination as to what she is like in reality, I feel as though she would be incredibly polite and down to Earth kind of gal.
This may seem irrevelant, but I am going somewhere with this thought process.
A few nights ago, Blaine and I were scrolling through Netflix, trying to decide on a movie to watch. I noticed a poster for a movie titled ‘Inheritance’ with Lily’s face, and because I like her, we decided to give it a watch.
‘Inheritance’ is a “2020 American thriller film directed by Vaughn Stein from a screenplay by Matthew Kennedy. The film stars Lily Collins, Simon Pegg, Connie Nielsen, Chace Crawford and Patrick Warburton,” the movie’s Wikipedia page explains.
If you’ve heard anything about this movie, it may be that it has received a lot of shitty reviews. Personally, I don’t agree with a majority of these reviews, and I actually enjoyed the movie.
Collins plays a woman named Lauren Monroe who is the District Attorney for Manhattan. The oldest daughter in an incredibly powerful and wealthy family in the city, it is revealed early on that Lauren did not have the greatest relationship with her father, Archer, who recently passed away from a ‘heart attack.’ In his will, Archer leaves Lily a jump-stick and key, and in a very confusing and coded message, directs her to a secret he quite literally took to his grave. The film follows Lauren as she attempts to navigate through her father’s secrets and grapple with what she unearths along the way.
I enjoyed this movie’s storyline and endlessly twisting plot, and I found the cast to be well-selected. It may not be the best movie I’ve seen, but it definitely had me holding my breath at times, and I do believe it’s worth watching.
