Martha Marcy Jude Coon

Hard to believe that director Sean Durkin hasn't made another movie since he made the phenomenal Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011 - I suppose it's intimidating, gunning it so hard right out of the gate, and he probably wanted to make sure he was getting it right and avoiding the dreaded sophomore slump... also it is as they say just damn difficult to get an actual movie made in the world; that much we should take into account too. Anyway he has floated some projects, and he has produced some projects, but today comes word at last on him actually stepping back into the director's seat - he's directing a movie called The Nest and it will star Jude Law and Carrie Coon and I know I've already bought my ticket but if you need more here's the description:

"[The film] will feature Law as a businessman who brings his American wife and kids home to Britain to pursue new business opportunities, only to be plunged into despair as their unaffordable new life in an English manor threatens to destroy the family. As the eerie isolation of the house divides the family, each member descends into a self-destructive cycle, leaving everyone unsure if the clan will survive."

If you are not already aware, SHOPPING is streaming now on Amazon Prime. Come for the mind-meltingly pretty mid-90s Jude Law, stay for the everybody else in the cast.
