Kill Me Later movie review

Fun on the Run

Shawn Holloway (Selma Blair) is having a bad day. She is unchallenged and disenchanted by her job as a loan officer and she has just discovered that her married lover's wife is pregnant. When the bank is broken into she is on the rooftop contemplating suicide. The threats of the bank robber (Max Beesley) Charlie Anders are welcome, not frightening. She agrees to help him escape providing that he Kills Her Later.

Will the two strangers bond in their adventurous escape from the police?

A slick and edgy film production, Kill Me Later is a caper film with a dark side. Shawn's depression meets Charlie's plans for a better life when they join forces. The result is fast-paced and highly entertaining.
