A declining film star heads to a therapeutic retreat and begins to doubt her personal id in “She Will.” A trailer for the psychological horror pic, which landed director Charlotte Colbert the Golden Leopard for Finest First Movie on the Locarno Movie Pageant, introduces us to Veronica (Alice Krige, “The OA”), who travels to rural Scotland along with her nurse (Kota Eberhardt, “X-Males: Darkish Phoenix”) following a tough surgical procedure.
“I’m having darkish ideas,” Veronica reveals. Whereas processing trauma she’s endured on film units, she’s instructed that “the earth is believed to have therapeutic properties from the ladies who had been burned as witches.” The wilderness in the end “offers Veronica the facility to enact revenge,” the movie’s synopsis hints.
“She Will” is described as a “well timed feminist critique” with “#MeToo resonance.” In her director’s assertion, Colbert says it’s “about revenge, the facility of nature, the unconscious, the way in which we supply inside us the muscle reminiscence of all those that got here earlier than and all those that will come after.”
You possibly can catch the pic in choose theaters and on demand July 15. Colbert wrote the script with Kitty Percy.
