When elderly mother Edna (Robyn Nevin, The Matrix, Top of the Lake), inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay (Emily Mortimer, Mary Poppins the Returns, The Party & Shutter Island) and granddaughter Sam (Bella Heathcote, The Neon Demon) rush to their family’s decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay’s concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she’s been clashes with Sam’s unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna’s behaviour turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her.
Signature Entertainment presents Relic on Digital HD 8 January and Blu-ray & DVD 18 January 2021.
