In Measure Of Revenge we meet Lillian ( Melissa Leo ), a popular stage actress on New York’s Broadway. Her greatest joy is her son, Curtis ( Jake Weary ), who seems to have finally left his drug addiction behind after a long, difficult recovery. The former rock star and his girlfriend ( Jasmine Carmichael ) are even expecting a baby — which makes Lilian completely happy.
One day, however, she suddenly finds the young couple dead in their apartment. The police determine a massive overdose and close the case. However, the shocked Lillian does not want to believe it was an accident and undertakes her own investigations into the dangerous underworld of the metropolis. She meets Curtis’ former drug dealer Taz ( Bella Thorne ). Instead of blaming her, Taz’s distraught mother demands that she help her find who is really responsible…

Cast and Director of «Measure Of Revenge»
The production was performed by someone using the pseudonym Peyfa . According to various sources, it is said to be the producer Peter Wong , who did his main job on well-known titles such as «The Magic of Dreams», «The Color from Space» and most recently even the horror masterpiece «Malignant». Whether Wong is ashamed of his film or whether there were artistic reasons for using a stage name cannot yet be clarified at this point. Nor whether he is actually Peyfa. In any case, the US reviews for “Measure Of Revenge” range from various positive voices to blatant slating.
However, it is clear that Peyfa’s main cast can certainly be described as top-class. First up is Melissa Leo, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her performance in The Fighters and an Emmy Award for Louie. She has also appeared in hit movies like 21 Grams, Prisoners, Snowden, The Equalizer 1 + 2, Frozen River and Oblivion.
Bella Thorne plays the second important part. The former teen star not only draws attention to himself with controversial films such as «Assassination Nation», «Girl» or «LA Queens». Thorne also creams off the erotic platform OnlyFans with explicit photos and videos of himself. In 2019, the American also directed the porn film «Her & Him».
Joining Leo and Thorne were Jake Weary («Animal Kingdom»), Jasmine Carmichael («Sneaky Pete»), Adrian Martinez («The Guilty»), «Nip/Tuck» veteran Roma Maffia , and Kevin Corrigan from «GoodFellas» and «Departed» in front of the camera.
