Relic reprezinta debutul in lungmeraj al scenaristei/regizoare/ producatoare (australiana-japoneza) Natalie Erika James, considerata una dintre cele mai talentate regizoare ale noii generatii. Filmul horror indie le are in rolurile principale pe Emily Mortimer, Robyn Nevin si Bella Heathcote.

Dupa ce Edna (Robyn Nevin), o vaduva in varsta, dispare in mod misterios, fiica ei, Kay (Emily Mortimer) si nepoata, Sam (Bella Heathcote), se intorc in casa familiei, aflata intr-o zona izolata, pentru a o gasi. La scurt timp dupa intoarcerea ei, cele trei femei descopera o prezenta sinistra care bantuie casa si care pune stapanire pe Edna.

Dupa premiera sa din cadrul Festivalului de Film SundanceRelic are un rating de 100% pe Rotten Tomatoes, iar Jessica Kiang de la Variety a scris despre film: “This talented debut writer-director has unusual confidence in her storytelling and beds its more lurid excesses so deeply in the cleanly drawn psychologies of her three actors that it feels like it grows out of them organically, like a twisted tree. And here she’s capably abetted by Mortimer, Heathcote and Nevin’s excellent performances that draw the intergenerational relationships between grandmother, mother and daughter with lived-in subtlety and insight.”

Relic va fi disponibil in format video incepand cu data de 10 iulie 2020.
