Critic Reviews for The Good Girls (Las niñas bien)
With this subtle drama about high-society social maneuvering, writer-director Alejandra Márquez Abella essentially transplants Edith Wharton's thematic concerns to Mexico City in 1982.
The Good Girls is more like an intentionally overdressed drama than a satirical comedy, while the clearly foretold ending robs the proceedings of any suspense.
Swirling camera work and chronological jumps quietly tighten the screw while the art direction provides continual delight: The Good Girls is, among things, a deliciously precise critique of 1980s fashion.
Patiently bathing in the excess of high society, director Alejandra Márquez Abella's camera often makes the audience feel like the silent fifth member of Sofía's inner circle.
An excellent look at how the economic crisis of 82 hit the most comfortable class. [Full Review in Spanish]
