Pike plays Marla Grayson, a court-appointed legal guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover Fran (Eiza González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (two-time Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair, nor square.
Says Canham: “The score’s initial playful shiny swagger mirrors the American Dream, juxtaposing the reality of horrible people doing horrible things on screen. As the story develops the veneer of the American Dream begins to crack, allowing the less predictable and uncomfortable sounds to emerge, underlining the wicked reality of the situation, forming a darkly humorous yet brutal satirical take on this broken concept.
After the shoot I retreated to my studio through lockdown with an array of instruments and noise making machinery to complete the score that carefully morphs in tone through the film – with its off-kilter arpeggio-laden sardonic playfulness, into an atmospheric darker textural assault.”
