As the world celebrates International Women’s Day, we are pleased to show you the first official teaser trailer for DARLIN’, one of three Midnighters directed by women at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. DARLIN’ will have its World Premiere at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival on Saturday, March 9th.
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Brian Batt of Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh of The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee’s cult hit The Woman, DARLIN’ sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast on the senses and sensibility in equal measure.
