Oscilloscope Laboratories is proud to reveal the exclusive first-look trailer to STANLEYVILLE, the quirky, dark feature debut from writer/director Maxwell McCabe-Lokos that has won festival accolades across the globe.
One fine day, prim and proper Maria (Susanne Wuest) decides to unceremoniously walk away from her boring job, her inept husband, and her obnoxious daughter. Moments after doing so, she’s invited to participate in a bizarre and—as it turns out—potentially very dangerous sweepstakes contest, the rules of which are seemingly unknown to even its organizers, competing with a collection of idiosyncratic characters for the chance to win true enlightenment… and one slightly used habanero-orange compact sport utility vehicle. Dark as night and deadpan hilarious, with every fresh escalation progressing according to a warped logic that makes perfect (non)sense.
Beginning Friday, April 22, STANLEYVILLE opens for a one-week exclusive New York theatrical engagement at Metrograph, with an additional rollout planned after.
The pitch-black comedy stars Susanne Wuest (Goodnight Mommy, We Might as Well Be Dead), Cara Ricketts (FOX’s The Resident, Netflix’s Anne with an E), Christian Serritiello (The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Showtime’s Homeland), George Tchortov (Amazon’s The Expanse, ABC’s Designated Survivor), Adam Brown (Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy), and genre legend Julian Richings (Cube, Anything For Jackson).
