SWEET GIRL, starring Jason Momoa and Isabela Merced, arrives on Netflix on August 20, 2021.
It’s always been clear that Jason Momoa would be a perfect pick for big burly action on screen – but in the likes of Aquaman and Game Of Thrones, he’s often been set against epic fantasy canvases instead of getting his hands dirty in fast-paced fistfights. His next film, though, is more grounded fare – Netflix’s revenge thriller Sweet Girl, which finds Momoa swapping aqua for straight-up action, with a side-serving of drama
The racy thriller revolves around a family that fights as one for justice. Devoted family man Ray Cooper (Jason Momoa) vows justice against the pharmaceutical company responsible for pulling a potentially life-saving drug from the market just before his wife (Adria Arjona) dies from cancer. But when his search for the truth leads to a deadly encounter that puts Ray and his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) in harm’s way, Ray’s mission turns into a quest for vengeance in order to protect the only family he has left.
‘Sweet Girl’ is directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza and also stars Justin Bartha, Amy Brenneman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis and Michael Raymond-James.
