QUICK TAKE:
Action/Drama: An alcoholic, agoraphobic nurse of the near future tries to keep the peace and save the lives of various wounded people who arrive at her members only hotel for criminals.
PLOT:
It's 2028 and Jean Thomas, a.k.a. the Nurse (JODIE FOSTER), runs a members-only hotel/hospital for criminals in downtown Los Angeles. With riots breaking out following the private company that owns the city's water having turned off the taps, things are hopping at the Hotel Artemis where the hulking Everest (DAVE BAUTISTA) serves as Nurse's orderly, bodyguard and enforcer of the establishment's many rules.

Among those there is bank robber Waikiki (STERLING K. BROWN) who's arrived with his badly wounded addict brother, Honolulu (BRIAN TYREE HENRY). Contract killer Nice (SOFIA BOUTELLA) is also there and must contend with unwelcome advances from unsavory arms dealer Acapulco (CHARLIE DAY). And with Nurse having bent her own rules by bringing in her former neighbor, Morgan (JENNY SLATE), who's now a cop, things have become even tenser.

And that's because the crime boss who runs the city, Niagara, a.k.a. the Wolf King (JEFF GOLDBLUM), is arriving soon with his abrasive adult son, Crosby (ZACHARY QUINTO), and the rest of his armed goons. With all of them having their own agendas and her still affected by the death of her son years ago, Nurse tries to keep the peace and save the lives of her various patients.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For violence and language throughout, some sexual references, and brief drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
