First Trailer For Foe Teases A Tense Sci-fi Look At Marriage


Some People Are Made For Each Other

Amazon Studios has been ramping up its film slate as of late, and they’ll soon have a new sci-fi thriller on their docket with an Oscar-nominated cast. For fans of the hit Netflix series Black Mirror, this isn’t a film to miss.

A Tense Futuristic Look At Marriage

Based on the book of the same name by Iain Reid, Foe is a new film from director Garth Davis and stars Paul Mescal (Aftersun) and Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) as a married couple 40 years in the future on a deteriorated Earth. Junior and Henrietta live alone on a secluded farm in a mundane routine, but things change with the arrival of a stranger named Tarrence.

Terrence, played by Aaron Pierre (The Underground Railroad), offers the couple a grand opportunity. Junior has the chance to go into space for several years to help pilot a program to transition humanity away from the deteriorating earth, and to keep Henrietta company, she’ll be left with a cybernetic version of her husband.

 As indicated in the trailer, this does not sit well with the couple as things quickly spiral after Junior leaves his wife with his copy. The film is teased to be a futuristic look at the state of a marriage under the most unlikely of circumstances, and based on the overall tension in the trailer, the stakes are incredibly high.


What Else Is Known?

Garth Davis is the director of the 2016 Oscar-nominated film Lion, starring Dev Patel, about a man who reunites with his family after being separated for 25 years. He also directed the critically acclaimed Mary Magdalene, a biblical drama starring Joaquin Phoenix and his wife Rooney Mara. 

Foe is based on the novel by Iain Reid, who previously wrote his tense thriller I’m Thinking of Ending Things. The novel and the Netflix film directed by Charlie Kaufman, follows a long road trip narrated by a woman traveling with her boyfriend to meet his parents. 

As time progresses, things start to appear off, leaving the woman to question reality and her very existence. Fans of both these properties can understand that they may very well be in for a surreal experience, as Reid is a master of making even the most normal of circumstances feel terrifying, promising that Foe will be a surreal out-of-this-world experience.

If that wasn’t enough to get them excited, then the top-tier cast should be. Paul Mescal has been nominated for an Emmy for his performance in Hulu’s Normal People and an Oscar for his role in last year’s Aftersun. Saoirse Ronan has also been nominated for an Oscar four times for her performances in Atonement, Lady Bird, Little Women, and Brooklyn. 

Don’t miss Foe when it hits theaters on October 6. And don’t forget to see the first trailer below.
