Focus Features has shared the official trailer for You Won’t Be Alone, the witchy feature debut of Australian-Macedonian writer and director Goran Stolevski.
Set in an isolated mountain village in 19th century Macedonia, You Won’t Be Alone follows a young girl who is kidnapped and then transformed into a witch by an ancient spirit. Curious about life as a human, the young witch accidentally kills a peasant in the nearby village and then takes her victim’s shape to live life in her skin. Her curiosity ignited, she continues to wield this horrific power in order to understand what it means to be human.
Noomi Rapace (Lamb) stars in the film alongside Anamaria Marinca (The Girl with All the Gifts), Alice Englert (Ratched), Félix Maritaud (Knife + Heart), Carloto Cotta, and Sara Klimoska. Producers on the project include Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook) and Sam Jennings (Cargo).
