Netflix continues to push intriguing film projects with the future release of Horse Girl, a new feature from indie darlings The Duplass Brothers. Written by director Jeff Baena (writer of I Heart Huckabees, director of Life After Beth) and star Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community), Horse Girl looks to push the boundaries of traditional narrative storytelling with a dark tragicomedy regarding isolation and the dream world. In terms of Netflix films, think more Unicorn Store then The Irishman.
The official synopsis for the film:
“Sarah (Alison Brie), a socially isolated arts and crafts store employee, finds herself more content in the company of horses and supernatural crime shows than people. But when a series of strangely surreal dreams upend the simplicity of her waking life, Sarah struggles to distinguish her visions from reality. Directed by Jeff Baena, Horse Girl is a darkly humorous psychological thriller about a woman’s search for the truth, however abstract it may be.”
Horse Girl will have a limited theatrical release and will be streaming on Netflix on February 7th, 2020. Find further details on the official Netflix page. See below the credits for an official photo gallery of images from in front of and behind the camera, all courtesy Netflix.
