We continue our series going through the entire cataloguer of A24’s films. On this episode we are looking at 2015’s Barely Lethal directed by Kyle Newman. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld as Megan/Agent 83, a teenage secret agent who runs away to be a regular high school student but trouble pops up in the form of her rival Heather/Agent 84, played by Sophie Turner. Joining the show is Jericho Tadeo, The Asian Cut’s newest editor!
If you haven’t heard our deep dive into the origins of A24, listen to episode 108: A History of A24 Films and our last episode in this series episode 250: A24 Retrospective – Slow West.
