Thanks to her years on Alias as well as her turn as the Elektra (in Daredevil and Elektra), Jennifer Garner is adept at action driven material. With Peppermint, Garner returns to the genre but this time out the premise offers up an entirely different storyline.
“This mom loses her whole family in an instant,” said Garner. “Then the system really lets her down and she has nowhere to turn. It breaks her heart in such a way (that) who she is as a person disappears and she becomes this kind of vigilante and fighter coming back to fight for justice for her daughter and her husband.”
