We hope the folks involved with making “Hungry Hearts” brought some extra luggage to the Venice Film Festival this summer, because they walked away with a ton of hardware. Alba Rohrwacher took home two trophies (the Pasinetti and Volpi awards for Best Actress), Adam Driver nabbed the Volpi for Best Actor, and director Saverio Constanzo won the Leoncino d’Oro Agiscuola Award. Not bad. Now you can see why it earned that acclaimed as the first trailer has arrived.
With nods to Roman Polanski and Alfred Hitchcock, the story follows a Manhattan couple whose new baby raises the tension between the pair, until it resembles a psychological thriller. When we caught up with the movie at TIFF, we called it a “tale of paranoid parenting” that’s makes it “this year’s most unique horror film.”
IFC Films will release “Hungry Hearts,” but no date has been set. Check out the trailer below along with some clips right here.
