Sweet Girl – Jason Momoa Takes on Big Pharma

GameStop, Inc.

Sweet Girl stars Jason Momoa on his action-packed journey to bring big pharmaceutical to justice for their role in the death of his wife

It is no big secret that big pharmaceutical companies can save many lives, but often deliberately do not in order to increase profits. There are many different forms of this, but it is not hard to see how their active inaction, or active non-helpfulness, that lets people die can be viewed as pretty much murder. Many have spoken up and taken action, and there are times where mysterious befallings have happened to those who speak out, but sometimes those who have been devasted by big pharma actually hurt them back and bring them to justice. Sweet Girl looks to be one of those cases.

The Netflix original film stars Jason Momoa as Ray Cooper, whose wife dies from cancer after a pharmaceutical company pulled the potentially life-saving drug from the market. He vows justice against the company, and the company tries to shut up him up… permanently. Ray expected some pushback, but when the company’s actions to silence him endanger his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced), his quest for justice turns into revenge.

The film looks to be a gritty action story that involves a lot of violence. Personally, seeing Momoa take on more grounded and close-quartered encounters is the big draw of the film. Not that taking on armies isn’t cool, but something about a person being able to take people out in close-up situations in a more reality-like context is just awesome to watch. It becomes more personal and easier to imagine and understand the pain. The film also sets up some hard-hitting, and very real, drama which amplifies the tension and sets the stakes very high.

Sweet Girl is releasing only on Netflix on August 20. Continue reading below for production stills, key art, and official production information from Netflix:
