From playing warlords and superheroes, Jason Momoa gets a little more grounded in his latest role in Sweet Girl. The gritty action thriller sees the action star in a whole new light, playing the role of a grief-stricken father who has to protect his daughter.
In Netflix’s Sweet Girl, Moma portrays devoted family man Ray Cooper, who vows justice against the pharmaceutical company responsible for pulling a potentially lifesaving drug from the market just before his wife (Adria Arjona) dies from cancer.
But when his search for the truth leads to a deadly encounter that puts Ray and his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) in harm’s way, Ray’s mission turns into a quest for vengeance in order to protect the only family he has left.
Sweet Girl is directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza and stars Justin Bartha, Amy Brenneman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis, and Michael Raymond-James. Check out the trailer below before the movie arrives on Netflix on 20 August 2021.
