From IMDb: “A 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community begins to worry that his glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets.”

Poster Rating: C

Review: There’s a bit of symbolism and a bit of blending here that almost works, but most passers-by aren’t going to get it and are certainly not going to be compelled to see the film.

Trailer Rating: A / A-

Review: (#1) A perfectly constructed trailer that suggests mystery without giving away details, builds to a satisfying conclusion, and ultimately does everything necessary to get the audience involved in the narrative.

(#2) It’s hard to overstate how difficult it is to make a film look as compelling both in a type of teaser format as well as a full length trailer format. Whoever is working on this film’s advertising is doing a smashing job as the film keeps its mysterious twists and turns vague while continuing to make it look most compelling. That “tick tock” overlay tarnishes what is otherwise a fascinating design.

Oscar Prospects:

This might well be one of the year’s Oscar sleeper hits. It’s a period film, is strange, and it has a lot of prominent actors.
