Steven Soderbergh is one of the most consistent filmmakers in the business. Whether he’s going for box office flash with the Magic Mike and Ocean’s 11 movies or something more cutting and thought provoking like Unsane and last year’s No Sudden Move, the man can be counted on for top-notch entertainment. And now he’s back with a new movie that filmed entirely on COVID lockdown: Kimi. Zöe Kravitz stars in a slightly futuristic tale of an Alexa-type device that records everything and one woman who hears a recording she wasn’t supposed to.
Kravitz has been on the rise for a while, with performances solid enough in movies like Mad Max: Fury Road and Hulu’s High Fidelity that she probably didn’t even need her famous last name to grab The Batman role that will make her a superstar in a few months. Like most of Soderbergh’s recent movies, this one is headed directly to HBO Max. You can watch it come February.
