Mariana Di Girólamo (breakout star of Pablo Larraín's EMA) gives a tour de force performance as the eponymous Verónica in Chilean director Leonardo Medel's (COACH) chilling social media thriller. A model married to an international football star, Verónica Lara is a burgeoning social media influencer with a growing following, a beautiful new baby and a seemingly perfect life. But just as Verónica is vying for a big job as the new face of a high-profile cosmetics line, she learns that she's the prime suspect in an investigation into the murder of her first daughter, who died in mysterious circumstances a decade earlier. Amid the pressure of the inquiry, Verónica's daily efforts to maintain the illusion of perfection for her followers start to flounder, her marriage verges on breakdown and she begins to feel pangs of jealously toward Amanda, her newborn daughter. Medel perfectly blends dark humor, satire and tragedy to craft a chilling examination of influencer culture that keeps viewers guessing right to the end.
