Magnolia Pictures has released a brand new exclusive clip from their upcoming sci-fi drama LITTLE JOE, which is the english-language feature debut from director Jessica Hausner. Make sure you check out the clip below and let us know what you think.
LITTLE JOE follows Alice (Emily Beecham), a single mother and dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy. Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe.’ But as their plant grows, so too does Alice’s suspicion that her new creation may not be as harmless as its nickname suggests.
The film is directed by Jessica Hausner (Amour Fou, Lourdes). LITTLE JOE stars Emily Beecham (Daphne, upcoming Cruella), Ben Whishaw (Mary Poppins Returns, upcoming The Personal History of David Copperfield), Kerry Fox (The Dressmaker, An Angel At My Table) and Kit Connor (Rocketman).
The film will open in theaters on December 6, 2019. Will you make happiness your business this holiday season? Time will tell…
On the fence about the film? Check out our review of the film here, where we call it “a rather subtle science-fiction drama that plays out like an episode of ‘Black Mirror’.”
