Directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis (USA/France, 2019, 94 min.). Digital. Cinematography by Katelin Arizmendi. Narrative feature.

Hunter (Haley Bennett, The Girl on the Train), a newly pregnant housewife with a seemingly perfect life, finds herself increasingly and inexplicably compelled to swallow dangerous household objects. As her husband and his family tighten their control over her life, she must confront the repressed trauma that sparked her new obsession. This wholly unique psychodrama is a beauty to behold, lensed by cinematographer Katelin Arizmendi (Cam; It Comes at Night). The film premiered at the Tribeca International Film Festival, where Bennet took home the Best Actress award.

“A deeply unsettling feminist thriller . . . Bennett delivers a masterful performance.”—Variety
