Yew! We’ve been hanging for this! A fresh new trailer has dropped for Luke Shanahan’s Rabbit ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Rabbit stars Adelaide Clemens, Alex Russell, Jonny Pasvolsky, Veerle Baetens and Charles Mayer and is produced by David Ngo.
Haunted by dreams of her missing sister Cleo and convinced – against all available evidence – that she is still alive, medical student Maude Ashton returns to their childhood home determined to find her. With the help of Cleo’s fiancé, Ralph (Alex Russell, also in the MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Jungle), Maude tracks her twin to a hidden commune where she learns that their fates are intrinsically intertwined.
Also featuring remarkable Belgian actor Veerle Bætens (last seen at MIFF in 2013, in the Oscar-nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown), Rabbit is the chillingly atmospheric feature debut from Luke Shanahan. With a stunning aesthetic courtesy of cinematographer Anna Howard (previously hailed for her work on MIFF 2012’s Errors of the Human Body) and a suitably nerve-jarring score by Michael Darren, this MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Gothic mystery asks just how far we’ll go to save a loved one.
