‘The Royal Hotel’ Review — Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick Take a Trip
When two friends decide to go on a backpacking journey, the last place they expect to end up is in the middle of nowhere as bartenders serving the most women-thirsty and deranged men in town. Yet this is what Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick‘s Liv and Hanna, two Canadian friends looking to visit Australia and make a few bucks along the way, must endure in The Royal Hotel. This film directed by Kitty Green, who has previously worked with Garner in the MeToo-inspired The Assistant, is filled with tension and distress as these two friends slowly become a pair of fresh meat in the eyes of the local bar clientele.
Kitty Green’s latest feminist thriller The Royal Hotel, starring Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick, is chilling. Read on for our review.
