Vengeance is a darkly comic mystery about Ben Manalowitz, a journalist and podcaster who travels from New York City to West Texas to investigate the death of a girl he was hooking up with.
Vengeance is the feature directorial debut of writer and star BJ Novak, a five-time Emmy-nominated writer and director on the US version of The Office, where he starred as Ryan Howard.
Not released in South African cinemas, Vengeance has an 81% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Variety calls it, “a one-of-a-kind movie that’s so wide awake and sharp-edged it marks the arrival of a potentially major filmmaker”, and TIME Magazine says it’s “a shrewd satire that’s a pleasure to watch”.
