Rosamund Pike is a queen of thrillers, and her latest effort gives the genre a more comedic spin. In I Care A Lot, Pike plays crooked legal guardian who drains the savings from the elderly. She meets her match when she comes across a woman with connections to a hot-headed gangster.
The first trailer for the film from writer-director J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed, The 5th Wave) showcases Rosamund Pike, Dianne Wiest, and Peter Dinklage all coming together for what looks like an insane romp about crime and messing with the wrong people.

Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business partner and lover Fran (Eiza González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (two-time Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair nor square.
I Care A Lot debuts on Netflix on February 19th, 2021.
