Director Sean Durkin‘s long-awaited follow up to Martha Marcy May Marlene is a powerfully unsettling drama with masterful performances from Jude Law and Carrie Coon.
Rory (Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, persuades his American wife, Allison (Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s.
Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable.
Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel and the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.
Moody, absorbing and mysterious, The Nest is a fascinating exploration of family dynamics and a decade of outlandish consumerism.
