IFC Films and Shudder acquired Resurrection, the psychological thriller written and directed by Andrew Semans (Nancy, Please), starring Rebecca Hall, Tim Roth, Grace Kaufman and Michael Esper, that premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.
Resurrection’s Margaret (Rebecca Hall) leads a successful and orderly life, perfectly balancing the demands of her busy career and single parenthood to her fiercely independent daughter Abbie. Everything is under control. But that careful balance is upended when an unwelcome shadow from her past, David (Tim Roth) returns, carrying with him the horrors of Margaret’s past. Battling her rising fear, Margaret must confront the monster she’s evaded for two decades who has come to conclude their unfinished business. Writer-director Andrew Semans delivers pure havoc one moment and feelings of deep familiarity the next, creating a film that promises a gripping emotional journey fused with a grand guignol style living nightmare.
Director Andrew Semans added, “IFC Films has released some of the greatest films of the past two decades. It’s a great honor to be working with their remarkable team and a great pleasure to know that Resurrection will be in such good hands.”
