Genre-bending cinema is the craze these days. Filmmakers are not confined by the boundaries of a country or a creative genre to showcase their art. These are the times when art has become truly experimental, as people from different parts of the world are being cast for movies that would never have them as the star vehicle. One of the most recent examples of this genre-bending, boundary-shattering narrative is Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon.

Starring Kate Hudson, Jeon Jong-seo, Craig Robinson, Ed Skrein, Altonio Jackson, and Evan Whitten. Directed and produced by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film is about a girl with supernatural powers locked in a facility. She escapes from the institution harming multiple people and stumbles upon the streets of New Orleans where she encounters a policeman who tries to arrest her, a DJ who helps her, and a single mother who tries to take advantage of her powers.

Buring fame Jeon Jong Seo plays Lee Mona Lisa, the girl with the superpower. She has mind control powers which she uses to escape a facility that contains adolescents with mental illness. Her journey of getting out of the facility into the real world and how she juggles everything is what this movie is all about. And Jeon Jong Seo really shines in her Hollywood debut.

Kate Hudson’s Bonnie is one of the people Mona Lisa meets out of the institution. She is a single mother who exploits Mona Lisa’s power to get some money. Her relationship with her son Charlie and Mona Lisa is an interesting one to watch. Like always Kate’s performance is a delight. Mona Lisa also meets this cop officer Harold played by Craig Robinson who at first is shocked to witness her powers and makes it a mission to capture her and return her to the place she belongs to.
