The Trouble with Jessica (15) (2023) 89

They were already in trouble... the she turned up.

SARAH (Shirley Henderson) and TOM (Alan Tudyk) are a married couple in terrible financial trouble. On the brink of losing everything, they’ve managed to find a buyer for their stylish London home. When their best friends RICHARD (Rufus Sewell) and BETH (Olivia Williams) come round for a final dinner, an uninvited old friend, JESSICA (Indira Varma), tags along.

After a seemingly trivial argument, Jessica hangs herself in the garden. Tom goes to call the police when Sarah realizes if the buyer finds out, the sale will collapse, meaning definite financial ruin for their family. The only solution – to convince Richard and Beth to take Jessica’s body to her flat and make it look like she killed herself there. If they’re clever enough about it, what could possibly go wrong?

Wickedly brilliant... smart and funny

Rolling Stone

It’s a gripping set-up that recalls everything from the thriller Shallow Grave to that Fawlty Towers episode The Kipper and the Corpse


Brims with charm ... undercut by an uncurbed, ruthlessly dark humour

Shirley Henderson is a total treat
