Celebrate Art House Theater Day at Orange County’s only non-profit art house cinema with a one-night-only screening of Peter Strickland’s (the singular auteur behind the sumptuous sadomasochistic romance The Duke of Burgundy and auditory gaillo-homage Berberian Sound Studio) new nightmare: In Fabric.
The story follows a lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband. She visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.
“If you haven’t yet guessed, Strickland’s real terror concerns our addiction to buying things, and In Fabric goes way beyond zombies in a mall.” — Joshua Rothkopf, TimeOut
“In Fabric is weird and wonderful in the extreme.” — Emma Simmonds, Radio Times
“As funny and beautiful and troubling as anything I have seen this year.” — Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph UK
