Mimi Cave directs Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sebastian Stan and Jojo T. Gibbs in this romantic comedy thriller involving supermarket hook-ups and cannibalism.
A wonderful little calling card movie. Essentially two elongated seductions where the end game both times is murder. The finale is rushed and notably less smart and playful than the slow drip build-up. This looks hot, there’s a tangible texture in every production design decision, and Cave playfully retains a couple of unrefined dance numbers… she’s smart enough to bask in her stars’ chemistry. I wanted to like Fresh even more than I ultimately did. Stan is a cool antagonist but you do have to question his choice of girls to turn into prime cuts. They’re all a bit… skinny… no?
