Sony Pictures took Sebastian Silva’s thriller Magic Magic to the Sundance Film Festival and got quite a bit of buzz. Starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno, the film takes place in remote Chile, where a vacationing young woman begins to mentally unravel. This trailer certainly captures that, with Cera in particular using his upper crust charms to creepy effect.
In the film, “While vacationing with a friend in the spectacular Chilean lake district, young American traveler Alicia (Temple) begins seeing disturbing images visible only to her. Her best friend Sarah (Browning) suddenly returns to Santiago, leaving Alicia in an unfamiliar country surrounded by strangers (Cera and Sandino Moreno). More and more she unravels, seeing darker visions and hearing chilling noises that send her running into the woods. In this disturbing landscape, she experiences crushing terror and knows that she must escape. A destabilizing, psychological thriller recalling the best works in the genre, this film entices viewers into a world they won’t be able to forget.”
