The new realization of Alex Garland is revealed in a first teaser. “Men” takes Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear to disturbing nature and places. An A24 production which we hope will soon be released in France.
It’s very simple, Alex Garland has crazy talent. We owe him in 1996 the novel The beach adapted by Danny Boyle for the cinema in 2000. Writing and ideas that appeal to the director, since Garland is found in particular in the scenarios of 28 days later and sunshine.
On the production side, in 2015 he presented the very successful Ex Machina and the surprising Annihilation in 2018. And his new film, Men announced in theaters across the Atlantic for May 20has just been revealed in a necessarily maddening teaser (video above).
Men – A24, Alex Garland, and Jessie Buckley on the move
Can we dream better than this collaboration? For Ex Machina and Annihilation, Alex Garland could count on Alicia Vikander and Natalie Portman. For this movie, it is to another very talented actress that he entrusts the leading role: Jessie Buckley. At 32, the Irish actress is on the rise and may soon be awarded an Oscar for her recent performance in The Lost Daughter.
In MenMovie, we know that she goes by the first name of Harper and we see in these images that she seems alone in a house in the country. If we find the taste of Garland for an organic nature, no technological issues on the horizon, a priori.
Facing her, Rory Kinnear embodies a very disturbing presence. Who is he? What does he want? How does it exist? The atmosphere is dreamlike and frightening at will in Menand it’s a register in which the production and distribution company A24 is the master.
In 2019, for example, A24 produced, among other things, Midsommar and The Lighthouse. The assurance therefore of having a strong aesthetic and great gaming performance in this movie.
