The trailer for Netflix’s Eli, arriving on the streaming giant beginning October 18th, looks like a modern Gothic reimagining of 1976’s The Boy in the Plastic Bubble! Give it a spin at the top of the article.
Eli is the story of a young boy plagued with an unknown, debilitating illness that requires him to live completely sealed off from the outside world. After exhausting every option, his parents put their trust – and his life – in the hands of a doctor whose experimental, cutting edge treatments at her clean house facility may hold Eli’s last hope. As Eli undergoes the tremendously intense process that could potentially cure him, he begins to be haunted by experiences that make him question who he can trust and what is lurking inside the house.
Eli is directed by Ciarán Foy from a screenplay penned by David Chirchirillo, Ian Goldberg, and Richard Naing; the film stars Kelly Reilly, Sadie Sink, and Max Martini.
