Netflix released the trailer for the ‘darkly humorous psychological drama’ Horse Girl trailer starring Alison Brie that is set to premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. The film will debut on Netflix on February 7, 2020.
Alison Brie is credited as a writer along with the director Jeff Baena who is returning to the festival for the fourth time, following Life After Beth, Joshy, and The Little Hours. In addition to Alison, the film also stars Debby Ryan, John Reynolds, Molly Shannon, John Ortiz, and Paul Reiser.
Sarah (Alison Brie) has a quiet and fairly simple life, contenting herself with the crafts-store job she holds, the nightly supernatural crime TV show she adores, and the equestrian center she visits constantly. When a gift impulsively stirs her curiosity about her family history, unexpected and strange dreams begin to disturb her. As these visions seep into her waking moments, Sarah struggles to hold on to her fragile reality. Director Jeff Baena returns to the Sundance Film Festival with his fourth feature, diving into an incredibly personal and unusual new realm while retaining his trademark aptitude for character exploration and unsettling humor. … Born out of a close collaboration between Baena and Brie, who co-wrote and produced the film, ‘Horse Girl’ looks at the tenuous grasp we have on waking life through a bold and disquieting character study.”
