The gothic classic Frankenstein gets a 21st Century reimagining in Perfect, a high-concept sci-fi produced by Steven Soderbergh and Flying Lotus (the latter also scores the film). The trailer, embedded at the top of the article, is a sensory trip sure to get you hooked on what Perfect has in store!
Perfect will premiere in theaters in New York at Village East Cinemas on May 17th and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Ahrya Fine Arts on May 24th, followed by a VOD launch exclusively on Breaker.io beginning June 21st.
Perfect introduces Garrett Wareing as an emotionally troubled young man. His mother (Abbie Cornish) sends him to a clinic, where modernist serenity whispers soothing promises of perfection. By planting plug-and-play characteristics directly into his own body, he is relieved of his dark, twisted visions, but his body pays the price for purity of mind.
Perfect is directed by Eddie Alcazar from a screenplay co-scribed by Ted Kupper; in addition to Wareing and Cornish, the film stars Courtney Eaton, Tao Okamoto, and Martin Sensmeier.
As Flying Lotus comments: “Brainfeeder’s film division was created to build an infrastructure for the talents of the new avant-garde, the new left field, the next new wave. Lotus. Perfect is one of several collaborations I’ve worked on with Eddie Alcazar, and I’m so glad that this unique vision is ready to make its way into this world.”
