William Oldroyd, USA 2023, 100’
Polish premiere
Dreamin’ Wild Memory

Anne Hathaway in the film adaptation of Ottessa Moshfegh’s novel plays a femme fatale who turns a certain secretary’s world upside down. The young girl’s erotic fascination encourages her to break the chains of social expectations, provincial mentality and suppressed desires.

‘Eileen’ Review: Anne Hathaway and Thomasin McKenzie Excel in a Wildly Audacious, Wondrously Twisted Period Psychodrama (Variety)
