cruel summer

One of this season's most talked about films amongst cinephiles definitely will be VIOLATION, the heavily impressive debut by Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli, who share writing and directing credits.

It's a transgressive experience, a haunting case study of a psychological meltdown (and much more) - and now, it finally received a clever trailer that shows a lot by not giving away anything. After making the festival round at Toronto, Sundance and SXSW, VIOLATION finally will premiere on Shudder on March 25.

Here's their synopsis for you: “With her marriage about to implode, Miriam returns to her hometown to seek solace in the comfort of her younger sister and brother-in-law. But one evening a tiny slip in judgement leads to a catastrophic betrayal, leaving Miriam shocked, reeling, and furious. Believing her only recourse is to exact revenge Miriam takes extreme action, but the price of retribution is high, and she is not prepared for the toll it takes as she begins to emotionally and psychologically unravel.“
