The Kitchen

In 1978, three women (Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss) find their mobster husbands thrown in prison; when the local mob boss refuses to help them out financially, the women start their own little operation. Andrea Berloffā€™s directing debut uses its locations and period flavors well. The soundtrack hits all the right notes and the three leads are colorful; McCarthy and Haddishā€™s sense of humor serves the film well. However, the shifts in tone are brutal enough to make you seasick and its feminist message is a bit on the nose.

2019-U.S. 102 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Andrea Berloff. Comic Book: Ollie Masters, Ming Doyle. Cast: Melissa McCarthy (Kathy Brennan), Tiffany Haddish (Ruby Oā€™Carroll), Elisabeth Moss (Claire Walsh), Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Brian dā€™Arcy Jamesā€¦ Margo Martindale, Common, Annabella Sciorra.
