Film Review by Allen Henriquez

The Laundromat (2019)

 

Director: Steven Soderbergh

Cast: Meryl Streep, Jeffery Wright, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas

 

Meryl Streep, in this all-star cast, shines as a woman who after the death of her husband (John Cromwell), investigates the insurance fraud she encounters. The story intertwines several characters trapped in a maze of: fragmented, and dissolving, international insurance discrepancies. The film is completely unpredictable, and absolutely funny; and all based on fact.

The juxtaposition of the conspiring duo, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, gives us the villain’s point of view, in the most ridiculously cavalier mindset possible.

I was impressed with the cohesiveness of the story line, considering the visits made into the lives of several of the victims, with Meryl Streep lurking till the Grand Finale of this fun trip.

The film expresses the true corruption entrenched in today’s world-wide insurance coverage.

 

**Available on Netflix**
