Starring Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Kevin Jenssens
Directed by Coralie Fargeat
A young mistress (Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz) and her businessman boyfriend’s (Kevin Jenssens) romantic getaway — in a posh lodge in the Moroccan desert — goes awry when his sleazy pals drop in for a visit.
She’s raped by one of them and the men try to cover it up by leaving her to die. But guess what? She survives her injuries (never mind that she lost massive amount of blood) and now she wants payback.
Gory, intense and empowering, Revenge isn’t an easy movie to sit through, especially in the end when the heroine, embracing her inner Beatrix Kiddo and Lara Croft, takes down her attackers with extreme prejudice. On Netflix. (***1/2)
