Julia Hart's movie is an offbeat perspective on the superhero film (she also co-wrote with Jordan Horowitz - famous as the LA LA LAND Producer who announced that MOONLIGHT had actually won Best Picture at the Oscars). Three generations of women carry the secret of their superpowers and are, per usual, being chased down by 'authorities'. Lorraine Toussaint, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Saniyya Sidney are the trio and their conflicts and bonds are what keep the movie grounded. The always solid David Strathairn plays a sympathetic local sheriff who is hiding his own secrets. The supernatural elements are limited, but well played. It's very much an indie drama through and through, but worth seeking out.
