The first official trailer for Shirley is here.
The film had its world premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and was one of the festival’s hits.
Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Logan Lerman, and Odessa Young star in the Josephine Decker-directed thriller. Decker directed from a script by Sarah Gubbins.
Per the official synopsis: “Fred (Lerman) and Rose (Young) move to a small Vermont college town in pursuit of a job for Fred as an assistant professor of literature. The young couple receives an offer for free room and board from professor Stanley Hyman (Stuhlbarg), as long as Rose agrees to spend time cleaning up the home and looking after his wife, acclaimed horror author Shirley Jackson (Moss). At first Fred and Rose detest the rocky household of the eccentric couple, but they eventually establish deep bonds with their counterparts, which will test the limits of their young love.”
Shirley hits VOD and digital on June 5.
