Argument, the movie.
Shot during COVID-19 lockdown, this is an artfully-composed two-hander, with John David Washington and Zendaya spending a night exchanging a series of monologues in support of a never-ending fight.
He’s a hot-shot movie director, full of self-righteous anger, flying high off being hailed as a genius for a story about a woman fighting addiction.
She’s his long-suffering girlfriend. The film was essentially her life story, yet he failed to acknowledge that.
It’s basically a staged play, and the constant sniping gets tiresome, but Zendaya is transcendent as a woman of many moods.
Her work here is sublime.
