While I may not have been the one to pick Becky to watch, I ended up having such a good time with it! The movie follows Becky (Lulu Wilson) whose weekend with her dad at the family lakehouse suddenly turns violent when some escaped prisoners come looking for something.
At its core, this is a revenge movie so there are definitely familiar elements that are expected of that genre but Becky makes one major change in that it has a 13-year-old at the centre of it. Now, that fact does not mean the violence is turned down because it most certainly isn’t. There’s still lots of blood and gore and death throughout.
