Shirley

Presented by Nicola’s Books 

Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Auteur Filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival 2020!

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss) is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds (rising stars Logan Lerman and Odessa Young) upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband (Michael Stuhlbarg). The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naive young couple at their door.

107 minutes. Drama/Thriller. R. (For sexual content, nudity, language and brief disturbing images)

A thrillingly perverse example of what happens when the shackles of biopic formula are cast aside.

The Guardian

“Moss ratchets up the simmering intensity in this fictionalized ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’ account of the later career of the celebrated queen of literary horror and suspense.”
