Abbie Cornish (Limitless, Seven Psychopaths) stars as a photographer suffering from memory loss who may or may not have done terrible things in twisty psychological thriller Lavender. A trailer landed this week for the film, which also stars Justin Long (Drag Me to Hell, Tusk) and Dermot Mulroney (Zodiac, Insidious: Chapter 3).
Released in limited US cinemas on November 4th, the film is directed by The Last Exorcism Part II helmer Ed Gass-Donnelly, who also scripted alongside Colin Frizzell, who makes his writing debut.
Here’s the official word:
Abbie Cornish stars in this thriller as Jane, a photographer who is forced to come to terms with her mysterious and tragic past after a horrendous car accident robs her of her memory. Along with her husband (Diego Klattenhoff, ‘Blacklist’) and daughter, Jane returns to her childhood home and reconnects with her estranged uncle (Dermot Mulroney). To take control of her life, Jane must confront a mysterious lurking force and grapple with a past that continues to haunt her.
Director/co-writer Ed-Donnelly crafts a riveting hallucinatory tale about a woman who must relive horrors to save the ones she holds the most dear. With a strong supporting turn from Justin Long, ‘Lavender’ is full of twists and turns that will keep audiences engaged until the very end.
