In this absorbing revenge thriller executive produced by Darren Aronofsky, a Native American woman embarks on the fight of her life when she goes in search of her missing sister. The former boxer intentionally gets entangled in a human trafficking operation in order to retrace the steps of her kid sister and work her way up the chain of command to find the man responsible.
Real life US boxing world champion Kali Reis plays the fearsome protagonist, delivering a raw breakout performance in a role that she co-wrote with the filmmaker, Josef Wladyka, who turns in an explosive and taut thriller with a directorial assurance.
Thwarting the conventions of a “woman on a mission,” CATCH THE FAIR ONE is efficient filmmaking-immaculate cinematography, quick-cut editing, powerful performances-as well as something entirely new in mainstream cinema from an indigenous, female perspective. The ruthless world of human trafficking is brought to life here with gripping suspense and an emotional depth led by Reis, who simply commands the screen.
