Shining Girls plot details
For those who haven’t read Beukes’ novel, we’ll give you a quick rundown of what to expect from the upcoming thriller. Moss stars as Kirby Mazrachi, a Chicago newspaper archivist whose journalistic ambitions were put on hold after a traumatic assault. A recent murder reminds Kirby of her case, and she partners with troubled reporter Dan Velazquez (Wagner Moura) to uncover the attacker’s identity.
During their pursuit, the pair draw disturbing links between the two cold cases, and Kirby’s reality becomes increasingly blurred as she inches closer to the assailant. Besides Moss and Moura, Shining Girls also stars Phillipa Soo, with Amy Brenneman and Jamie Bell rounding out the cast.
