Anne Hathaway and Thomasin McKenzie are spiraling into one thing darkish within the first trailer for Neon’s Eileen.
Directed by William Oldroyd, written by Ottessa Moshfegh and Luke Goebel and in addition starring Shea Whigham, Marin Eire and Owen Teague, Eileen follows McKenzie’s titular younger secretary, employed at a jail throughout a bitter Massachusetts winter in 1964.
The greater than two-minute trailer teases a doozy of a day — “a type of days you’ll always remember” — for Eileen after the arrival of Hathaway’s Rebecca, the brand new jail psychologist. “She could also be straightforward on the eyes,” one man says as he introduces her to jail workers. “However I guarantee you, she could be very sensible.”
The blonde-haired, pink-lipped smoker leaves Eileen feeling off kilter, as somebody who “lives a bit in a different way than most individuals.” She sees one thing in Eileen, who’s hardly regular and much from “common,” in line with the psychologist.
“You bought an enormous life forward of you, I’m positive,” Rebecca says. “I wager you could have good desires.”
Eileen rapidly turns into enchanted by the brand new counselor, who develops a closeness with the youthful lady. “Eileen, could I open up to you?” Rebecca asks within the trailer. “Persons are so ashamed of their needs.
However their budding friendship takes a twisted flip after Rebecca reveals a darkish secret that hurls Eileen onto a sinister path. “I’ve my very own concepts,” she tells Eileen. “You’ll be able to by no means inform anybody, you perceive? Promise me.”
The trailer guarantees issues will spiral uncontrolled as the 2 stick with it, with Eileen’s father admitting at one level he can’t even think about her with a knife. “Are you able to think about me with a gun?” she responds.
“That’s excellent, Eileen,” Rebecca whispers. “Some issues are so twisted, the one means out is for somebody to die.”
Eileen is produced by Anthony Bregman, Stefanie Azpiazu, Peter Cron and Goebel. It releases in theaters on Dec. 1.
