With four Oscar nominations to her name Saoirse Ronan is one of the bright lights in a young generation of actors as is Paul mescal who also has an Oscar win from earlier this year for Aftersun and his star is very much on the rise as he currently films Gladiator 2. So the combination of the two in an adaptation of a best selling book has huge appeal when the Foe trailer dropped
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.
Amazon Studios will release FOE theatrically in the UK and Ireland on 20th October 2023
