“A perversely entertaining take on a brief period of Shirley Jackson’s life gives Elisabeth Moss one of her most daring roles to date.” — The Guardian
“A psychologically layered portrait of unapologetic womanhood that’s dangerously sensual and sumptuously rebellious.” — The Wrap
“Elisabeth Moss is phenomenal.” — Slashfilm
SHIRLEY (2020 / 107 min / Rated R)Directed by Josephine Decker Starring: Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Odessa Young, Logan Lerman
Synopsis: Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.
