Anna Kendrick plays a woman at her breaking point in アリス, Darling.
火曜日に, Lionsgate released the first trailer for the upcoming film directed by Mary Nighy, which follows the title character Alice (ケンドリック), who is struggling to separate herself from her psychologically abusive boyfriend Simon (Charlie Carrick).
The trailer shows Alice as she musters up the courage to lie to Simon that she is going on a work trip when she is invited by her close friends (Kaniehtiio Horn and Wunmi Mosaku) on a vacation.
The trailer shows her pulling out her own hair and attempting to leave the vacation early for fear over angering her boyfriend.
Footage also teases what happens when Simon arrives unexpectedly at the women’s’ 別荘, and his reaction to Alice’s lie.
の前に アリス, Darling‘s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, Kendrick told PEOPLE that Alice’s story “resonated” with her for a specific reason.
“I was coming out of a personal experience with emotional abuse and psychological abuse,” 彼女は共有しました, recalling the time she first came across the screenplay. “I think my rep sent it to me, because he knew what I’d been dealing with and sent it along. Because he was like, ‘This sort of speaks to everything that you’ve been talking to me about.’ ”

“It felt really distinct in that I had, 率直に言って, seen a lot of movies about abusive or toxic relationships, and it didn’t really look like what was happening to me,” 彼女は付け加えた. “It kind of helped me normalize and minimize what was happening to me, because I thought, '上手, if I was in an abusive relationship, it would look like that.’ ”
For Kendrick, アリス, Darling marked the first time she’s taken on a project so relevant to her.
“Usually, it’s just I read a good script and I like the people involved, and I make the movie,” she told PEOPLE in September. “And it was really surprising timing that we found this script at that moment in my life. And in fact, I remember my first Zoom meeting with Mary Nighy, 部長さん, disclosing to her what I was going through.”
“And I even said to her, ‘This all happened very recently. 実際には, it happened so recently that if the movie was shooting in a month, I probably shouldn’t do it,’ ” Kendrick recalled of the meeting. “But it was many, many months away. So I wasn’t in danger of re-traumatizing myself. しかし、ええ, it’s certainly a unique experience.”
アリス, Darling will begin its theatrical run in Los Angeles theaters on Dec. 30 and will expand exclusively at AMC Theaters nationwide on Jan. 20, 2023.
