A housewife becomes a monster in Scary Mother, the feature debut of Ana Urushadze.
Variety reports today that Alief LLC has moved into the sales business by acquiring the international rights to the psychological thriller out of the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.
The deal includes festival representation, and a national release is planned for September.
The film, written and directed by Urushadze, centers on “a 50-year-old put-upon housewife, Mañana, who hesitates between the pressures to be a dutiful wife and mother and her passion to write. When she chooses the latter, sacrificing everything both physically and mentally, the once taken for granted woman is seen as a monster.”
Scary Mother is a co-production between Studio Artizm and Gemini and Estonia’s Allfilm.
