if ur looking for a movie to watch i HIGHLY recommend Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, a new Netflix original.
- It stars Ashleigh Murray (Josie on Riverdale!) as Deidra, a valedictorian trying to take care of her family when the entire world basically sets her up for failure.
- It was written and directed by women (also the director, Sydney Freeland, is a Navajo woman (and only 36!))
- Deidra and her sister Laney are both super complex and rich characters (plus they have 3 good female role models!)
- It also addresses really important themes re: race and the legal system/ incarceration and stuff.
tl;dr: watch Deidra & Laney Rob a Train on Netflix (and rate it 5 stars tbh)
