A young housewife living in the 1950s discovers a disturbing truth while her loving husband hides a dark secret.
I've purposely left myself in the dark on what this movie's premise was and I am happy I did. I had no idea this movie was going to be a psychological thriller that almost looks like it involves a cult or scifi of some sort and I am ALL IN on that. This movie has a really good cast, a blossoming director in Olivia Wilde and good writers. I would be shocked if this turned out to be anything less than a top 20 movie of the year for me.
This movie now has a little bit of infamy attached to it after Olivia Wilde was served papers by Jason Sudeikis' lawyers while presenting the movie at CinemaCon. Initially, I tweeted out how that didn't seem like something Sudeikis would sign off on and that it seemed like typical scumbag lawyer shit. I hate when people conflate actors with the characters they play(Ted Lasso), but I always thought Sudeikis came off as endearing in interviews and in moments like his acceptance of the Golden Globe. However, I was almost immediately checked by some hollywood folks I know that said it is exactly the type of thing he would sign off on, which is kind of a bummer.
This comes out September 23rd.
