This movie is available for streaming on Hulu.

As a critic, you often see early screenings of films without any idea of the story or plot. Occasionally, it leaves us with much less knowledge than audiences who see promos and commercials on TV in the week leading up to a movie’s release. Often, the only information available is just the cast members and general premise.
