Ridley Scott’s seminal work was electric and provocative, a vision of female friendship and freedom that thrilled and unsettled. Writer-director Katherine Dieckmann’s film, premiering in Toronto and starring Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon (Gone Girl, HBO’s The Leftovers) as best friends, is a sincere, somewhat clunky drama, delivering lots of Americana-infused atmosphere but little excitement or novelty.
