In case you missed the news yesterday, all movie fans (us included) are rejoicing with Ster-Kinekor cinemas set to reopen from next week (28 August) and one of the exciting movies we can look forward to is AVA. It comes in celebration of Women’s Month where the equality of women takes centre stage. AVA, produced by Filmfinity, is an action packed thriller directed by Tate Taylor and written by Matthew Newton about a female assassin played by the gorgeous Jessica Chastain.
Ava (Jessica Chastain) is a deadly mercenary who works for a black ops organisation, travelling the globe and specialising in high profile hits. Ava’s career takes a sudden, bad turn when a high profile job goes wrong due to faulty information provided to her. She is told to take a break until the heat blows over, but secretly, someone, has ordered a hit on her to ensure nothing traces back to the company.
Due to a family tragedy, Ava decides to go back home to Boston and attempt to mend her relationship with her mother (Geena Davis who ironically also played a female assassin in Long Kiss Goodnight) and sister, Judy, though the homecoming proves to be far from happy as the years of estrangement have created resentment.
To complicate things further, Ava discovers that her ex-fiancé is involved with an underground gambling ring that Ava knows all too well from her younger days. Ava has to save her family and herself from multiple threats, while battling her own demons.
We love movies here (a known fact) especially when they’re rendered and shown on the big screen, so we can’t wait to checkout this one. Catch AVA next week Friday, 28 August.
