On April 25, the Oscars will be awarded for the 93rd time in Los Angeles, and for the first time among the nominees is this time Amanda Seyfried, whose portrayal of actress Marion Davies in David Finchers NetflixProduction Mank is in the race. Even if her chances of winning are not very good at the moment, it is still a big step in the career of the actress.
Only a few days after the Oscar night, Seyfried will be in another, probably a little less Oscar-worthy production at Netflix to be seen. on the April 29 appears on the streamer of the horror thrillers Things Heard & Lakes, based on Elizabeth Brundage’s novel “All Things Cease to Appear”. Seyfried plays the young Catherine Clare, who reluctantly exchanges her life in Manhattan in the eighties for a remote house in the provincial nest of Chosen, in the state of New York, so that her husband George can fulfill his dream and teach art history at a small college. Catherine does her best to turn the old dairy farm into a cozy home for herself and her little daughter Franny, but feels increasingly isolated and lonely. Soon she feels a dangerous darkness lurking both in the walls of her new home and possibly in her marriage to George, who has secrets in front of her.
Curiously, the content description immediately reminds me of the horror movie You should have gone (OT: You Should Have Left), which appeared last year, and in which Seyfried also moves into a possibly haunted house with her obscure husband (Kevin Bacon), who hides a dark secret. The trailer for Things Heard & Lakes looks like generic, but potentially solid genre fare with a good cast. In addition to Seyfried play in the film Jeremy Norton (“McMafia”), Natalia Dyer (“Stranger Things”), Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul”) and Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham (“Homeland”==References==
