After rave reviews earlier this year at Sundance Film Festival, Neon Pictures has released the Official Trailer For Shirley. Josephine Decker‘s (Madeline’s Madeline) film is a unorthodox look at renowned Horror writer Shirley Jackson. Elizabeth Moss stars as the famed author who finds herself on the verge of madness!
If anyone is wondering will find this one be a straight up biopic? It looks like the answer will be no. The film looks like Shirley Jackson transport herself into the pages of one of her stories. We follow the author and her husband who invite a newly wed couple to stay at their home. They slowly drive the young couple mad to inspire her to write her next book!
Slowly becoming a big fan of Moss, who seem to expertly portrays distressing and emotional downfalls. Could Moss get some recognition possibly at the Oscars in 2021? Never say never, remember Oscar eligibility has changed for next year!
Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.
The above Trailer is promoting the film’s U.S release. We don’t have any word on when or who will release the film in the UK and Ireland. If you’re in USA, Shirley will be released on Digital HD format from 5th June.
The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Logan Lerman, Odessa Young, Steve Vinovich, and Adelind Horan.
