Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Linus Roache (Mandy), and Janeane Garofalo (Mystery Men) star in The Apology, which was written and directed by Alison Star Locke. Set 20 years after the disappearance of her daughter, the film follows recovering alcoholic Darlene Hagen (Gunn), who is preparing to host her family’s Christmas celebration with her best friend Gretchen (Garofalo). Late Christmas Eve, Darlene’s estranged ex-brother-in-law, Jack (Roache) arrives unannounced, bearing nostalgic gifts and a heavy secret.
Soon, Darlene finds herself caught between reason and ruthless instinct. Trapped together by a dangerous storm, a battle of wits escalates to a violent game of revenge…
The Apology is releasing in U.S. theatres and on Shudder and AMC+ on December 16th. Check out the trailer below.
