CAST: Danny McBride, Rosemarie DeWitt, Luke Wilson, Elizabeth Gillies, Kaitlin Olson DIRECTOR: Jonathan Watson WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES
Cassie (Rosemarie DeWitt, La La Land) is a real estate agent and single mom struggling to keep it all together during the housing crisis of 2009. Her problems go from bad to worse when disgruntled client Sonny (Danny McBride, Pineapple Express) violently confronts Cassie’s boss and then kidnaps Cassie – making one outrageously bad, and bloody, decision after another. Things completely spiral out of control in this explosive action comedy, also starring Luke Wilson (Idiocracy), Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), David Alan Grier (“The Carmichael Show”) and Elizabeth Gillies (“Dynasty”).
Arizona isn't quite the comedy you might expect, but it makes a worthy trade as a quirky survival story with some social commentary thrown in as well, due to its very pronounced housing-crisis setting.Evan Saathoff, Birth.Movies.Death.
Arizona is a special kind of crazy, but it's also grounded in its own way. Due to some shockingly violent developments at the beginning, the stakes feel real the entire way through, to the point that you'd believe anything could happen next.Adam Chitwood, Collider
