From writer/director Lawrence Michael Levine; Black Bear stars Aubrey Plaza as a filmmaker at a creative impasse. One who seeks solace from her tumultuous past at a rural retreat, only to find that the woods summon her inner demons.
Additional cast includes Sarah Gadon, Christopher Abbott and Alexander Koch.
Plaza’s character looks like quite the manipulator. In which case I sure hope that the seemingly innocent character played by Gadon gets out of there in one piece. I mean, my favourite line in this trailer did come out of her mouth: ‘No! It’s that I can’t stand the thoughts about the world that you have!’
Excited for a good, dramatic example of the experience of movie making.
Paola Lázaro, Lindsay Burdge, Jennifer Kim, Shannon O’Neill, Grantham Coleman and Lou Gonzalez also star.
In Ingrid Goes West which stars Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen and O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ingrid is a mentally disturbed young woman who’s obsessed with a social media star with ‘the perfect life’. Unsettling and increasingly dangerous is the turn Ingrid’s behaviour takes when she decides to move west to befriend the subject of her obsession…
I’m very much looking forward to watching Plaza, an actress I’ve only ever seen in comedy roles play a part that seems to be a lot more dramatic.
