Hulu’s new thriller, No Exit, puts a unique spin on the classic whodunit genre.
The film is directed by Damien Power from a screenplay by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Taylor Adams. It stars Havana Rose Liu as a recovering drug addict who discovers a kidnapping in progress while stranded at a rest stop during a blizzard. Danny Ramirez, David Rysdahl, Dale Dickey, and Dennis Haysbert co-star as the four suspects.
Recovering addict Darby Thorne learns that her mother is in the hospital. She escapes rehab and drives to Salt Lake City. While stopped in the middle of the road, Corporal Ron Hill tells her that the interstate is closed because of a developing blizzard. She agrees to stay overnight at a local visitors center. The only people inside are Ash, Lars, and married couple Ed and Sandi. Darby goes outside to look for a signal and ends up discovering a kidnapped girl in a van belonging to one of the people inside.
The film has some interesting twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Havana Rose Liu who plays Darby does a great job as the lead protagonist and carry’s most of the film on her shoulders.
The film has virtually no slow parts and the plot moves along at a pretty brisk pace.
