Exquisite is how one can describe the trailer from Rodarte fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy as they make the transition from fashion to film in Woodshock. A24 swept up the rights to the film before shooting even began, and the film starring Kirsten Dunst will be released this September.
After ingesting a trippy drug that alters her state of mind and Theresa (Dunst) spirals further into paranoia. “Woodshock is a hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia, and grief that exists in a dream-world all its own. Kirsten Dunst stars as Theresa, a haunted young woman spiraling in the wake of profound loss, torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug. Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime.” Reads the official synopsis.
The trailer is every bit as stylish as you’d expect. “What did you do, Theresa?” The male voice asks near the end of the trailer. Find out when the film is released on September 15.
