"I Care a Lot:" extremely entertaining and properly complex caper/thriller with

terrific performances by leads Rosamund Pike and Peter Dinklage. In Arizona, perhaps to this day, an elderly person can be placed into the hands (claws?) of a guardian without notification of next-of-kin or, indeed, without prior notification to the ward--- if there is no family residing within the same state. An investigative piece I read a few years ago underlined the predatory and complementary work by agents to make this a ridiculously lucrative endeavor:: doctors, real estate, judges, care facility owners/managers.

In this story, a healthy, wealthy, and vigorous older lady (a scene-stealing and Oscar Supporting Actress nominee, if there's any justice) is victimized by such a ploy; it is managed by "caregiver" Rosamund Pike. Unbeknownst to her, Wiest has a very powerful, underground "friend" (Dinklage) who when he realizes what has happened, not only seeks her release, but is driven to murderous revenge.

The twists-and-turns are clever, the acting is wonderful, across-the-board. No better way to spend an evening. (Netflix) (And a "Thanks!" to Road Warrior for the recommendation).
