To save her family’s failing restaurant, a desperate 20-year-old Asian girl parlays her Chinese food delivery expertise into a profitable drug hustle. This is the story of the indie thriller Take Out Girl. Be a part of a special watch party for Take Out Girl. This indie thriller is a ride you need to take! Join director Hisonni Johnson, actress Hedy Wong and other members of the cast for a watch party to remember.
Film Threat writer Andrew Stover gave Take Out Girl a rave review scoring it an 8 out of 10 and went on to say, “Hedy Wong’s performance as Tera is engagingly flinty and forceful, rupturing the silence with thousand-yard stares and revealing facial expressions that imply unspoken fear. By the time Tera begins fulfilling orders for Lalo, there’s a lingering sense of doom that stays with Tera throughout her unlawful journey. Under the watchful eye of Lalo’s chief enforcer, Hector (a charming yet rightfully intimidating J. Teddy Garces), and getting involved with a reformed convict named Nate (a gentle Dijon Talton), Tera crosses paths with many threatening and non-threatening faces determined to get something out of her, but as expected, she doesn’t always deliver. For the first 70 minutes, Hisonni Johnson’s Take Out Girl is an outwardly routine character study with a captivating perspective. But a genuinely surprising reveal does complicate things, consequently yielding a hurried conclusion with commendable (if fairly incomplete) ambition and intimacy.”
