Released on December 27, A Very Good Girl landed on the top trending topics on X (formerly known as Twitter). Directed by Petersen Vargas, the film follows the story of Philomena Angeles, or Philo, a young socialite seeking retribution against Molly Suzara, the affluent CEO who terminated her employment years ago. In this quest, Philo methodically infiltrates Molly’s social sphere to extract information capable of tarnishing her reputation. Unfortunately, the narrative unfolds with Philo experiencing internal conflict, grappling with the delicate balance between moral principles and the pursuit of justice.
