During May, I watched two new releases on Netflix (The Woman In The Window and I Am All Girls), and of those two, I Am All Girls was the clear standout.
What is I Am All Girls About?
Based on true events, this South African thriller follows a criminal investigator as she fights to take down a child trafficking ring, while also attempting to uncover the identity of a serial killer who appears to share her cause.
Is it worth watching?
I think this movie is a game-changer for South African movies, and I highly recommend you watch it.
The acting is solid, the plot powerful and thoughtful, the pacing is smooth, and the cinematography is outstanding – easily my favourite aspect of the film. Even the weak dialogue and one-too-many melodramatic moments don’t rob the film of its impact.
If you’re looking for a hard-hitting thriller, beautifully filmed, and vividly South African, this movie is for you.

I’m a writer and content creator from Cape Town. Thriller novels, action movies, rainy days & coffee are some of my favourite things. Connecting with people who love books and movies as much as I do is my favourite thing about life online.
