Ocean’s 8 is a crime-comedy movie centered around Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), a professional con artist and her expert group of thieves, including Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett), her partner in crime. The group of women make a plan for the biggest heist in their careers: to steal a 150 million dollar necklace off of the neck of Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), an incredibly well-known and idolized actress, in plain sight. Isa Gonzales (IV) says, “The plot is entertaining and the cast are amazing actresses.” She also expressed her love for the fact that Ocean’s 8 demonstrates strong female empowerment. She recommends this movie to teenagers.
