Ahead of the World Premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, Searchlight Picture acquired the thriller Fresh, directed by Mimi Cave and starring Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America franchise, I, Tonya)
Jojo T. Gibbs (Twenties), Charlotte Le Bon (Anthropoid, The Hundred-Foot Journey), Andrea Bang (Luce), and Dayo Okeniyi(Runner Runner, The Spectacular Now) round out the cast.
Fresh, which marks Cave’s feature debut, will stream exclusively on Disney’s DTC platforms as a Hulu Original in the U.S. on March 4, 2022 and internationally on Disney+ as a Star Original later in the spring.
Fresh follows Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones), who meets the alluring Steve (Sebastian Stan) at a grocery store and – given her frustration with dating apps – takes a chance and gives him her number. After their first date, Noa is smitten and accepts Steve’s invitation to a romantic weekend getaway. Only to find that her new paramour has been hiding some unusual appetites.
“Fresh is a wildly allegorical story, yet the film carries strings of truth throughout that I hope resonate for different audiences,” added director Mimi Cave. “I’m so pleased to be working with the Searchlight and Hulu teams to bring our film to the world and can’t wait for people to see the brilliant performances Daisy and Sebastian give.”
