Gallery Woodshock

Kirsten in a verge of a breakdown always gives good drama, right? So we’re all excited for Woodshock, the directorial debut of Rodarte founders Kate and Laura Mulleavy that had its trailer released today.

Kirsten Dunst stars as Theresa, a haunted young woman spiraling in the wake of profound loss, torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug. Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime, ‘Woodshock’ transcends genre to become a singularly thrilling cinematic experience that marks the arrival of the Mulleavy siblings as a major new voice in film.

A24 — which has distributed Academy Award-friendly fare in the recent past, including Moonlight, Ex Machina, and Room — secured U.S. distribution rights to the project at Cannes Film Festival in 2015. The film is based on an original idea from the Mulleavy siblings, one that had reportedly been in development for several years.

“Woodshock” opens September 15.
