Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #85. Garth Davis’ Foe


Lion (2016) and Mary Magdalene (2018) filmmaker Garth Davis moved into an ambitious sci-fi thriller third feature in January of 2022. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Paul Mescal and Aaron Pierre, the Amazon Studios project is an adaptation of the Iain Reid novel and went into production in Australia. Foe is being coined as a ” taut, sensual, psychological mind-bender set.” Anonymous Content’s Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, See-Saw Films’ Emile Sherman and Iain Canning and Davis’ I Am That shingle produced the project. This might be a beast of a project – so a fest strategy entry point will be critical in the eventual theatrical and platform rollout.

Gist: Set slightly in the future, after severe climate change has ruined farmland. A farmer and his wife struggle on one of the last remaining farms until a knock on the door changes things.

Release Date/Prediction: Amazon Studios will stake out a spot at a major film fest – perhaps Toronto?
