We told you about Prevenge back in December, and right now we have a brand new sliver of eye candy for you to ogle that’s ready to pop! Check it out!
Alice Lowe (Hot Fuzz, Kill List, Sightseers, The World’s End) directs and stars alongside Jo Hartley (Eddie the Eagle, This Is England), Dan Renton Skinner (High-Rise), Gemma Whelan (The Wolfman, “Game of Thrones”), Kayvan Novak (Four Lions, Paddington, Syriana), and Kate Dickie (The Witch, “Game of Thrones,” Prometheus).
Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has set a February 10th UK release for the flick.
A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. It’s her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth’s actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims.
Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.
Having shown at Venice, Toronto, and most recently the London International Film Festival, Prevenge marks the directorial debut from Lowe, who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.
