You can read the full, official synopsis below:
“In Alice, Darling, Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick is Alice in this taut thriller about a woman pushed to the breaking point by her psychologically abusive boyfriend, Simon. While on vacation with two close girlfriends, Alice rediscovers the essence of herself and gains some much-needed perspective. Slowly, she starts to fray the cords of codependency that bind her. But Simon’s vengeance is as inevitable as it is shattering — and, once unleashed, it tests Alice’s strength, her courage, and the bonds of her deep-rooted friendships.”
Alice, Darling’s world premiere and gala presentation will be during Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2022, at 9:30 p.m. EST and will take place at Roy Thomson Hall.
Director Nighy had the following to say about the production:
“’Alice, Darling’ is a subtle, nuanced story about coercion and control. As a director, I couldn’t wish for a better cast of talented actors and creatives to bring this important story to life. The chemistry between Anna Kendrick, Wunmi Mosaku, and Kaniehtiio Horn as the three friends is a joy to see.”
Alice, Darling runs for 90 minutes and is Rated R for language and some sexual content.
