Ocean’s 8 is a strong female-focused heist film based on stealing an expensive set of jewels from the MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art) in New York.
The story travels a well-worn path of gathering the team members and then stealing the goods. It’s based on the Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s series.
The team of actresses are made up of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. There are plenty of celebrity cameos, especially at the actual MET ball.
If you like fashion, you’ll love that everyone is rocking their own style. Hat’s off to Cate Blanchett’s character who wears androgynous clothes and vests with panache. The jewellery, of course, is divine and lust-worthy.
Ocean’s 8 doesn’t provide any surprises, but that’s okay, sometimes it’s just enough to escape from real life with a group of women owning it on the big screen, who for once are chasing after gold rather than men.
