The slick Los Angeles noir is a murder mystery for the queer crowd. 

"I'm going to kill you." That's what virtually everyone says to movie star Heather (Zoe Kravitz) at the start of Gemini -- so there's naturally a healthy lineup of suspects when she shows up dead. Maybe her ex Devin (Reeve Carney) was jealous that she found a new lover, Tracy (Greta Lee). Maybe director Greg (Nelson Franklin) flew off the handle when Heather walked off his film. Or maybe Jill (Lola Kirke), Heather's assistant, best friend, and alleged sidepiece, just got tired of standing two steps from the spotlight.

The new thriller has taken on added relevance since it went into production two years ago -- before the #TimesUp movement -- so the idea that it's hard out there for an actress lends plausibility to every killer scenario. But to the credit of writer-director Aaron Katz, who sets his plot against a Hollywood backdrop of relaxed sexual fluidity, Gemini dodges any easy twists, one-upping so many recent whodunits.
