Maria (Anamaria Marinca), a 200-year-old witch, abducts a young girl to raise as her own. But after transforming 16-year-old Nevena (Sara Klimoska) into one of her own kind, Maria quickly loses interest in her protégée. Abandoned in the woods, Nevena accidentally kills a peasant woman (Noomi Rapace) and assumes her shape. Enraptured by the wonders and hardships of life, Nevena continues to kill and inhabit both female and male villagers as she learns to treasure the range of human experience. But when Maria suddenly reappears, Nevena is forced to make a heartbreaking decision.
Goran Stolevski, the Macedonian-Australian Writer/Director who was named by Variety as “one of the 10 directors to watch,” has released his ambitious, first feature-length film. You Won’t Be Alone has been called a “visceral, spellbinding, dark supernatural thriller” and stars Noomi Rapace (Lamb, Prometheus) Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Top Of The Lake), Anamaria Marinca (4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days, Sex Traffic), Félix Maritaud (BPM), Sara Klimoska (Would You Look At Her, Willow), Carloto Cotta (Tabu), and Arta Dobroshi (Lorna’s Silence).
This film is an exploration of what it means to be human whilst dealing with themes like superstition, suspicion, and how folklore and religion can dominate one’s life. It is a film about choice and why it matters. You Won’t Be Alone will be available on digital platforms to own and rent, in the UK, starting from October 20th. Thanks for reading and as always, stay sordid. We will hopefully have a review up for you shortly.
