Critic Reviews for The Good Girls (Las niñas bien)
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.

We've seen this story before, but Abella keeps things interesting with her laser-like focus on set details and Salas's layered performance. The film doesn't go easy on Sofia but still gives Salas room to find her vulnerability.
