Run Rabbit Run

There was some moving pieces at the onset of Run Rabbit Run but Sarah Snook would end up toplining Daina Reid‘s directorial debut in the end. An Australian thriller, author Hannah Kent wrote the script from an original idea she developed. Reid began her film career as a scribe – writing a quartet of episodes for The Handmaid’s Tale. Sundance programmers said “Director Daina Reid crafts an exquisitely fine-tuned psychological thriller, elegantly incorporating unsettling visual and aural cues to signal how destabilized Sarah’s world has become.”

Gist: Snook plays a fertility doctor whose firm grasp on the cycle of life is put to the test as her young daughter begins to exhibit increasingly strange behavior.

Release Date/Prediction: This was selected for the Midnight section at Sundance.
