WATCH: A24 debuts trailer for arthouse drama ‘Woodshock’

‘Woodshock’ Trailer

It looks like Kirsten Dunst isn’t through levitating.

In the new Laura and Kate Mulleavy film Woodshock, Dunst plays a distraught woman(women?) whose tragedy pushes her to consume a mysterious drug. I don’t suspect Dunst will make a stellar performance; she’s played distraught women aplenty, from von Trier’s Melancholia to Coppola’s The Beguiled.

Watch the trailer here:

The film has been in-development with A24 for almost two years now. It’s great seeing it move forward, and if it looks gorgeous, it’s because Laura and Kate are key figures in the fashion industry, having founded the fashion line Rodarte—they are in the business of gorgeous. For what it’s worth, the film looks really promising.

The synopsis reads: “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.”

Woodshock arrives in U.S. theaters September 15th, the rest of us Indios will have to wait when a distributor decides to show this here. I propose that we bug Ronald Arguelles and add this to the lineup of this year’s Cinema One Originals.

Here are some screen-grabs, because I love you all.
