Queen of Earth

Genre: Drama, Thriller; Starring: Elisabeth Moss, Katherine Waterston, Patrick Fugit; Director: Alex Ross Perry; Release Date Wide: 08/26/2015; Runtime (in minutes): 90; MPAA Rating: Unrated

Call it “Repulsion Takes a Long Weekend”: Catherine (Elisabeth Moss), a woman more than on the verge of a nervous breakdown after a family death and a brutal breakup, goes to her best friend Ginny’s (Katherine Waterston) bucolic lake house to recuperate—but only unravels further when Ginny begins a romance with a neighbor (Patrick Fugit). The result is chilling and beautifully composed, a stylish study of disintegration that is easier to admire than enjoy. B
