“It was like the film was raping my face”
“highbrow-pervo conversation piece”
These are only some of the things people are saying about Downloading Nancy, the oddly-titled first film from Swedish music video/commercial big deal Johan Renck. Maria Bello, Jason Patric and Rufus Sewell star.
Impressive cast and some very intriguing reviews … Downloading Nancy premiered to gasps and walk-outs at this year’s Sundance, and seems like it might be the new film everyone comes out of Utah talking about for 2008. But what the hell is about?
Nancy (Bello) is an incest survivor whose marriage and self-esteem are in shambles. Her life seems devoid of meaning, so she finds someone online (Patric) who will hurt and, eventually, kill her. Freaky shit ensues.
Check out the trailer below, then head to the official Downloading Nancy site if it makes ya curious.
