Icon has released a UK poster, trailer and images for Alice Englert’s (The Power of the Dog) directorial debut Bad Behaviour.
The comedy drama stars Jennifer Connelly as a former child actor who attends a spiritual retreat in an attempt to seek healing from the traumas she experienced in her life, where she becomes destructively obsessed with one of its celebrity guests. Watch the trailer below…
Lucy (Jennifer Connelly), a former child actress, seeks healing from the traumas of her life. She embarks on a spiritual retreat, only for it to become anything but healing: she’s easily annoyed by the other attendees and wants attention from the retreat’s new-age guru Elon Bello (Ben Whishaw). Even worse, she has become destructively obsessed with the retreat’s celebrity guest, a model named Beverly (Dasha Nekrasova, Succession). As Beverly finds “enlightenment” easily, Lucy’s feelings of insecurity continue to rise to the surface.
During this time, Lucy also tries to connect with her stunt performer adult daughter, Dylan (Alice Englert) who’s currently on set in New Zealand. Dylan’s falling into an obsession of her own: a bad romance with the main actor Elmore, whose insistence on doing his own stunts will have disastrous consequences. Brutal incidents in both women’s worlds force them back together to confront their personal demons and their own relationship.
