Written by David Murray, Every Breath You Take becomes Stein’s sophomore feature after debuting Margot Robbie thriller Terminal in 2018.

Gist: Affleck plays a psychiatrist whose career is thrown into jeopardy when a patient takes her own life. When he invites the patient’s surviving brother, played by Claflin, into his home to meet his wife (Monaghan) and daughter, his family life is suddenly torn apart.
