The first trailer has arrived online for Alice Lowe’s directorial debut Prevenge. The dark comedy sees Lowe as a pregnant woman out for revenge after the death of her boyfriend, and also features a cast that includes Jo Hartley, Dan Renton Skinner, Gemma Whelan, Kayvan Novak and Kate Dickie; watch it below after the official synopsis…
A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. It’s her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth’s actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims.
Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.
Having shown at Venice, Toronto and most recently the London International Film Festival, Prevenge marks the directorial debut from Lowe, who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.
Prevenge is set for release on February 10th in the UK.
