Home / Now Showing / NOCEBO
Director Lorcan Finnegan’s ability to find the sinister within the very mundane has so far produced some of the most interesting genre pieces of the last decade – in his last film VIVARIUM, he explored the horrors that lay behind the perfectly manicured lawns of identical looking houses in a new, purpose-built neighborhood and gave us nightmares to last for weeks. In NOCEBO he turns his lens into a laser sharp examination of a consumerist society and its relationship to those who are exploited for profit. Eva Green, in a stunning performance, stars as a fashion designer struck with a mysterious illness that cripples her life whilst her husband, brilliantly played by Mark Strong, watches helplessly. All hope seems lost until the arrival of a new carer for their kid who brings with her the hope of a solution with her folk healing – however what she will end up revealing will be more horrifying than any of them can anticipate. Atmospheric, frightening and absolutely timely, NOCEBO will get under your skin like no other film this year and make you ask some pertinent question about your very own habits.
