Releasing on VOD this weekend is dark Polish thriller Playground, which tells a true-life tale of adolescent love going seriously wrong. Here we have a few stills for you as well as the trailer, which gives little away but carries a cold, unsettling vibe.
Playground (original title: Plac zabaw) is the feature debut from writer-director Bartosz M. Kowalski, who cut his teeth making a series of genre shorts and documentaries.
Final day of school in a small Polish town. It’s the very last chance for 12-Year-Old Gabrysia to tell her classmate that she had fallen in love with him. She sets up a secret meeting and blackmails her love interest to show up. But what was supposed to be an intimate talk spins out of control and this seemingly normal day in life of three ordinary elementary school students culminates in shocking and terrifying events.
Playground will be available on VOD from December 8th, from Uncork’d Entertainment.
