Mary’s story is a gratifying mirror to the ongoing cultural conversation about women, agency and power, but it’s worth noting that whenever Josie talked to me about this film she framed it as almost a gangster movie. . . . It’s refreshing then to see the film not just as a period costumer, but almost a female-driven version of “Heat,” complete with a pivotal scene where our opposing forces discover common ground.
