Things Heard & Seen
The husband-and-wife directing team of Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman made this spooky supernatural thriller about a marriage gone wrong. The film stars Amanda Seyfried and James Norton as a couple who move from New York City to an old house in the Hudson Valley, an idyllic but very haunted region north of the city. Their new home has a darkness that emerges in tandem with the darkness in their hearts as their marriage falls apart. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the directors compared the film to scary crumbling marriage classics like Rosemary’s Baby and Don’t Look Now. It looks to be a showcase for current Oscar nominee Seyfried to go full psychological meltdown, and we think she’s going to be amazing in it. The cast is small but stacked, and includes Better Call Saul’s Rhea Seehorn, Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer, and Amadeus Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham.
From Andrew Crump at The Playlist:
Rich filmmaking, from assured camerawork to tactile set decoration, is the film’s basis. But richer exploration of theme and spiritual belief is its design. Things Heard & Seen isn’t elevated. It’s just mature, wonderfully made, and, whether dead or alive, human. Full Review
