Sofía (Ilse Salas) is accustomed to the high life: tailored designer gowns, country club outings with the girls, and servants who wait on her hand and foot. Her biggest problem in life stems from a “new money” woman who is trying to worm her way into her social circle, much to her displeasure. That is, until her charmed life is threatened by Mexico’s 1982 economic crisis.

In The Good Girls, what starts off as a polished look at the lives of the upper crust soon turns into a delicate satire of one woman’s refusal to shed her perfect façade as life as she knows it slowly crumbles around her. Sofia never has a single hair out of place, an immaculate image that is mirrored by the endlessly chic 1980s costumes and set design on display in writer-director Alejandra Márquez Abella’s sophomore feature.
