QUEEN OF EARTH
2015, IFC Films, 90 min, USA, Dir: Alex Ross Perry

Catherine (Elisabeth Moss) enters a dark period in her life after her father, a famous artist whose affairs she managed, dies and she is dumped by boyfriend James (Kentucker Audley). Catherine heads out to her best friend Virginia's (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some much-needed relaxation but is soon overcome with memories of time spent at the same house with James the year before. As Catherine reaches out to Virginia for support, Virginia begins spending increasing amounts of time with a local love interest, Rich (Patrick Fugit), and fissures in the relationship between the two women send Catherine into a downward spiral of delusion and madness. A bracing, eerie look at the deep bonds of friendship and the horrific effects of such bonds being frayed.


DIGGING FOR FIRE
2015, The Orchard, 85 min, USA, Dir: Joe Swanberg

Tim (Jake Johnson) and Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt) are housesitting when Tim unearths a gun and a bone in the backyard, a discovery that sends the husband and wife in separate directions. This droll and insightful marital drama features a great cast including Sam Rockwell, Orlando Bloom and Brie Larson. “Joe Swanberg's starriest picture is a lovely slice of everything and nothing disguised as a murder mystery.” - Ben Kenigsberg, Variety
