As evidenced by her understated but powerful role in “Big Little Lies,” Zoë Kravitz has demonstrated a keen eye for complex projects from auteur filmmakers, which continues with Aaron Katz’s “Gemini.” Kravitz stars alongside up-and-coming indie favorite Lola Kirke (“Mistress America,” “Gone Girl”) in the New York-based filmmaker’s neo-noir thriller, which just released a captivating first trailer.
The Hollywood-set mystery stars Kravitz as Heather Anderson, a hot young actress with all eyes on her. Kirke plays her friend and assistant, Jill, who keeps her life together while offering a calming presence and fierce loyalty. When a violent crime threatens the balance of their friendship, Jill finds herself on the run as she attempts to solve the dangerous mystery. A movie in love with movies, Katz subdues his audience with sweeping visuals while keeping them guessing in this tension-filled caper.
