Our three-film retrospective on writer/director Todd Field concludes with his 2001 feature debut In the Bedroom, starring Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson.

Ruth and Matt Fowler (Spacek and Wilkinson, respectively) share a peaceful home life in the seaside town of Camden, Maine as their son, Frank, freshly graduated from college, returns home for the summer. In the midst of a fling with an older woman named Natalie, Frank attracts the attention of Natalie's ex-husband, who begins to interfere through dangerous means. When the unthinkable occurs, Ruth and Matt take to it in very different ways — one surrenders to isolation, while the other plans retribution.

The first film to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, In the Bedroom complements its stellar ensemble of actors with a compellingly restrained and literary approach from its debuting director.

“A courageous film - one that's willing to leave questions unanswered, relationships unresolved and injuries unhealed.” - Brian Webster, Apollo Guide

“Few things are more sorrowful than a couple in a house of mourning with nothing but a wall of silence between them.” - Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

“Beneath every smooth exterior runs an undercurrent of turmoil, unrest, and danger.” - John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis

Full synopsis
Brandon Cronenberg does it again with his much-anticipated third feature, the science fiction thriller Infinity Pool.

James (Alexander Skarsgard) and Em Foster (Cleopatra Coleman) are on vacation on the island of Li Tolqa, and they meet the mysterious Gabi (Mia Goth). A fatal car accident occurs, and James is found guilty of murder. He faces the death penalty in this foreign land but learns of a process available to the wealthy where a clone can made of the accused and executed in their stead. James and Em are sucked into an acutely violent and hedonistic torment of capital punishment and transformation.

Harnessing the talents of stars Skarsgard and Coleman, Brandon Cronenberg's Infinity Pool is poised to thrill and frighten.
