The secret weapon of the 2015 festival season was unquestionably Trey Edward Shults’ dazzling and disorienting “Krisha.” Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, as well as an official selection of Critics’ Week at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the drama stars Shults opposite his own aunt Krisha Fairchild in the titular role.
Borrowing from the likes of John Cassavetes, Robert Altman and Ingmar Bergman, Shults and Fairchild create a psychological force of nature over the film’s 90-minute runtime. A24 won’t be releasing the film until March 2016, though hopefully this trailer will hold prospective audiences over until then. Take a look at the clip above, and check out the film’s debut poster below.
