The new film from Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) is a New Orleans-set gumbo of genre filmmaking. When a struggling single-mother (Kate Hudson) befriends a mysterious mental institute escapee with supernatural powers (Jun Jong Seo), she sees a lucrative opportunity to make some fast cash. But when they draw the attention of a detective (Craig Robinson), their luck starts to run out as the cops close in on their crime-spree.
