Jennifer Garner received critical praise for her performance in action drama, Peppermint, reminding us of her outstanding performances in Daredevil (starring Ben Affleck), the spinoff film Elektra, and the hit tv series, “Alias“. Directed by Taken’s Pierre Morel, the film features score by Golden Globe® and GRAMMY®-nominated composer Simon Franglen, known for his song writing contributions to Titanic and Avatar, and the song, “Push Me” performed by Geno Lenardo with vocals by New Years Day’s Ash Costello.
