Synopsis

Cathryn is a pregnant children’s author, whose husband may or may not be having an affair. While holidaying in Ireland, her mental state becomes increasingly unstable resulting in paranoia, hallucinations and visions of a doppelgänger.

Our take

Focusing on the unstable psychology of a woman writer, Robert Altman’s ‘70s fever dream blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. Shot in impressionistic strokes by Vilmos Zsigmond and haunted by John Williams’ eerie score, this dreamlike psych-horror won Susannah York Best Actress at Cannes.
