MGM has released the official trailer for Garth Davis’ “Foe” starring Saoirse Ronan, Paul Mescal & Aaron Pierre. The film will have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival and then be released exclusively in theaters on October 6th.
Plot Synopsis: Academy Award nominees Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal star in “Foe,” a haunting exploration of marriage and identity set in an uncertain world. Hen and Junior farm a secluded piece of land that has been in Junior’s family for generations, but their quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger (Aaron Pierre) shows up at their door with a startling proposal. Based on best-selling author Iain Reid’s novel, directed by Garth Davis, and co-written by Davis and Reid, Foe’s mesmerizing imagery and persistent questions about the nature of humanity (and artificial humanity) bring the not-too-distant future to luminous life.
What do you all think of the trailer? Garth Davis showed tremendous promise with the Academy Award-nominated “Lion” and gave us “Mary Magdalene” with minimal impact. So, in a way, “Foe” feels like a reset film for the filmmaker and a chance to reestablish himself as a “visionary,” as the trailer suggests for audiences. The premise definitely looks intriguing, considering its focus on the characters and their relationship with one another. Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal are brilliant actors, but Aaron Pierre looks to be a standout in what appears to be a stripped-down sci-fi drama. What do you all think, though?
