2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Stacey Gregg’s Here Before

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Stacey Gregg’s Here Before

Shoring up at Sundance with five films in the past two editions (Mandy, Nancy, Burden, Possessor, Luxor) Andrea Riseborough could once again be linked to the festival with Stacey Gregg‘s directorial debut. After about a decade of screenwriting, Gregg went into production in November of 2019 in Belfast for Here Before and the supporting cast includes Jonjo O’Neill, Martin McCann, Eileen O’Higgins, and newbie Niamh Dornan.

Gist: Riseborough plays Laura, who becomes captivated by Megan (Dornan), the young daughter of a new family that moves next door. She stirs up painful memories of her own daughter who died several years previously and before long Laura’s memories turn to obsession as Megan’s unsettling behaviour begins to convince her of something supernatural.

Production Co./Producers: Rooks Nest’s Sophie Vickers.
