I thought it was written by Mel but it wasn’t. Lots of stuff seemed to be parallel with his life: recovery, Catholicism, nazi father figure, etc. But the screenplay was based on a book and it was written and directed by other folks. Anyways, great film. Nice twist for the typical revenge type father daughter trope. Great acting and foreshadowing and symbolism throughout. Really badass protagonists as well. For example, the female lead didn’t kick ass like a typical Hollywood movie, instead she was helpful by using her charm. The Alcoholics Anonymous aspect was also refreshing and added some great social commentary and relatable satire throughout.
