{Movie}: Birds of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020)

Harley and the Joker have broken up (he dumped her) and, in a rage-filled search for closure, Harley steals a gasoline tanker and drives it into the chemical factory that was the site of their first romantic encounters – jumping clear at the last moment. The resulting explosion and its aftermath precipitate a meeting of five women from all over Gotham who operate on different sides of the law: 1980s-style cop Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), mob heiress turned crossbow killer Helena Bertinelli (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), nightclub singer and martial arts enthusiast Dinah Lance (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and pickpocket Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco). Harley is to find herself in conflict with all of them but is also in league with them prima inter pares. The quest for a mega-valuable diamond animates the jittery, fragmented narrative, which zooms all over the place and brings in hideous club-owner and rich criminal Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor), who among his many sins is a culturally insensitive collector of African art.

A twisted tale told by Harley Quinn herself, when Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis
