Nancy — Trailer


added: Tue, May 1st '18

Andrea Riseborough (The Death of Stalin, Battle of the Sexes) turns in a disturbing performance as an emotionally troubled woman who claims to be a couple's long-missing daughter in the trailer for the psychological thriller "Nancy."

Much in the vein of the true-crime documentary "The Imposter," the upcoming film, though a fictional tale, is a provocative character study of a lonely, psychologically-disturbed 35-year-old woman (Riseborough) who may or may not be impersonating a missing girl who had disappeared almost thirty years ago but only now has returned home to her father and mother.

Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) and J. Smith-Cameron (Rectify, True Blood) co-star as the missing girl's grieving parents, while the supporting cast includes Emmy-winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale) and John Leguizamo (Bloodline).

Writer-director Christina Choe makes her feature film debut with "Nancy," for which she earned the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The film will open in select theaters on June 8th and then on VOD beginning September 11th.

Nancy is a provocative psychological thriller about love, intimacy, and trust -- and what happens when lies become truth. Craving connection with others, Nancy creates elaborate identities and hoaxes under pseudonyms on the internet. When she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, fact and fiction begin to blur in Nancy's mind, and she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents. As their bond deepens, reasonable doubts give way to willful belief -- and the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality.
