Anne Yum is a huge fan of a TV quiz show, and hasn't missed an episode since she was four years old. Now in her 30s, she and her fun loving, irresponsible sister must team up to pay off their mother's gambling debts to a gangster who has kidnapped their dog.

Quiz Lady is an American comedy movie directed by Jessica Yu (the director of Misconception, who has also worked on television shows including American Horror Story and Grey's Anatomy). It stars Akwafina (from Ocean's Eight and Crazy Rich Asians), as the delightful, probably autistic, Anne, and Sandra Oh (from Killing Eve and Grey's Anatomy) as her sister, Jenny. The two of them seemed to be having as much fun making this movie as I did watching it, which was a lot. They were completely believable as two sisters who had a rough childhood and were there for each other when it counts.

It also features Holland Taylor (from Romancing the Stone and The L Word) as Francine, Anne's cranky neighbour, and Will Ferrell as the quiz master.

Quiz Lady is a feel good comedy about family and sisterhood, and in case anyone was worried, Mr Linguine, the dog, is just fine. It is currently streaming on Disney Plus.
