I Care A Lot [2021] ★★½

I didn’t think I’d care for a recent Netflix release, but “I Care a Lot” knows its target audience and delivers exactly what you would expect from it. Rosamund Pike is good as always, playing a brilliant con artist who poses as a legal guardian for the elderly in order to drain their savings. Her latest victim? A wealthy retiree (Dianne Wiest) with no living heirs or family. Or so we thought. This sets the tone for an entirely watchable comedy/thriller that doesn’t pretend to be more than it is, but still manages to offer a few twists and turns as we go along. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then you’ll probably have a good time here. It’s not the best thing you’ll stream this month, but it’s entertaining enough for me to recommend it.
