Queen of Earth trailer, Elisabeth Moss battles inner demons

IFC Films has confirmed that “Queen of Earth” will release in New York City on August 26th, with a national campaign launching shortly after.

The film follows Catherine (played by Elisabeth Moss) during a particularly dark period in her life: her father, a famous artist whose affairs she managed, has recently died, and on the heels of his death she’s dumped by her boyfriend James (Kentucker Audley).

Looking to recuperate, Catherine heads out to her best friend Virginia’s (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some much needed relaxation. However, once Catherine arrives relaxation proves impossible to find, as she is overcome with memories of time spent at the same house with James the year before.

As Catherine reaches out to Virginia with attempts at connection, Virginia begins spending increasing amounts of time with a local love interest, Rich (Patrick Fugit), and fissures in the relationship between the two women begin to appear, sending Catherine into a downward spiral of delusion and madness. A bracing, eerie look at the deep bonds of friendship and the horrific effects of such bonds being frayed, Queen of Earth is a thrilling examination of a deeply complex relationship between two miserable women.

The drama-thriller comes from writer and director Alex Ross Perry. The film also stars Patrick Fugit and Katherine Waterston.
