Overview

Brace yourself for an unforgettable tour de force experience of punk proportions. Elisabeth Moss delivers a jaw-dropping performance as Becky Something, the wildly talented but wickedly self-destructive lead singer of a ‘90s riot grrrl band in the throes of fame. Bombarding her bandmates Marielle (Agyness Deyn) and Ali (Gayle Rankin) with an endless torrent of abuse and drug-addled tantrums, Becky struggles to stay in control of her gifts in the midst of addiction, divorce, motherhood, magazine covers and platinum records. As younger rivals start to arrive on the scene — and happier times seem increasingly distant in the rear-view mirror — will this strung-out rockstar manage to make it through another gig?

"Elisabeth Moss turns in a five-alarm blaze of a performance. It's a berserker infused with mad poetry ... the effect is shattering"
— Rolling Stone
"Moss is one of the most noxious movie characters of all time in Alex Ross Perry's intimate punk epic"
— Indiewire

Why You Should See This Film

A virtuoso concoction of Axl Rose, Courtney Love and The Joker, the central performance from Elisabeth Moss is as monstrously repellent as it is impossible to turn away from. Lit by cinematographer Sean Price Williams (Good Time) in garish shades of red and green, Moss electrifies the film with punk venom and shocking vulnerability. It’s no surprise that the ever-committed actress spent three months learning to play guitar before filming began, citing the screenplay as containing some of the hardest dialogue she’s ever had to memorise. Thankfully, the rewards of that effort are rich. She’s simply never been better.
