Dir. Josephine Decker. 2020. 107 mins. With Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Odessa Young, Logan Lerman. The latest from celebrated director Josephine Decker (Madeline’s Madeline) is a Sundance Film Festival award-winning dramatization of a real-life event centered on mid-century horror writer Shirley Jackson (The Haunting of Hill House, which inspired multiple screen adaptations, including a recent Netflix series by the same name). Jackson (Moss) is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds (Young and Lerman) upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband (Stuhlbarg). The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple.View trailer.
“A spellbinding picture.” – Jason Bailey, The Playlist.
“A psychologically layered portrait of unapologetic womanhood that’s dangerously sensual and sumptuously rebellious.” – Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap.
