After losing her memory, a woman begins to see unexplained things after her psychiatrist suggests she visit her childhood home.
It would be easy to watch the trailer for Lavender and write it off as another lazy thriller riding the amnesia train, but that doesn’t feel fair. There’s some standout cinematography, a seemingly unreliable protagonist, and—at least to me—a question of “is this a hallucination or something supernatural?” with the house scenes we’re treated to. Fortunately, audiences won’t have to wait long for the movie.
Samuel Goldwyn Films and AMBI Group will partner on the domestic release for the anticipated thriller, “Lavender.” Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly (The Last Exorcism Part II) who co-wrote the film with Colin Frizzle (Resident Evil: Apocalypse), the film stars Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Diego Klattenhoff (TV’s The Blacklist), Justin Long (Tusk, Drag Me to Hell) and Dermot Mulroney (Insidious: Chapter 3).
“Abbie Cornish provides a stellar performance in this psychological thriller,” said Melanie Miller, Executive Vice President of Samuel Goldwyn Films. “With beautiful cinematography and a distinct vision from director Ed Gass-Donnelly, we are proud to distribute “Lavender” in partnership with Ambi Group.”
Lavender will be in theaters and on VOD March 3rd, 2017.
