Earlier today, IFC Midnight dropped a brand new trailer for the nightmarish family psychodrama A BANQUET, which you can check out in the player below. To learn more about the film, check out our review!
Widowed mother Holly (Sienna Guillory) is radically tested when her teenage daughter Betsey (Jessica Alexander) experiences a profound enlightenment and insists that her body is no longer her own, but in service to a higher power. Bound to her newfound faith, Betsey refuses to eat but loses no weight. In an agonizing dilemma, torn between love and fear, Holly is forced to confront the boundaries of her own beliefs.
The film stars Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil film series, High Rise), British rising stars Jessica Alexander (“Get Even”) and Ruby Stokes (Rocks, Una), and award-winning actress Lindsay Duncan CBE (Made in Italy, Private Lives). A BANQUET is directed by Ruth Paxton and written by Justin Bull.
Producers on the film are Leonora Darby, Mark Lane, and James Harris for Tea Shop Productions (47 Meters Down, I Am Not A Serial Killer), Nik Bower for Riverstone Pictures (Final Portrait, At Eternity’s Gate) and Laure Vaysse (Billie, 6 Minutes to Midnight) for REP Productions 8, which also funded the production. Deepak Nayar, co-founder of Riverstone Pictures, serves as Executive Producer, alongside Jeremy Baxter of Riverstone, Patrick Fischer and Richard Kondal of Creativity Capital, and screenwriter Justin Bull.
IFC Midnight will release A BANQUET in select Theaters, on Digital platforms and VOD on February 18, 2022.
