In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears in visionary filmmaker Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina, Annihilation) feverish, shape-shifting new horror film.
Ben Salisbury formed a composing partnership with Geoff Barrow (Portishead and Beak>) and together the pair have scored Alex Garland’s Ex Machina, Annihilation and Devs. Other notable credits include Ben Wheatley’s Free Fireand Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror episode, “Men Against Fire”. They also scored three seasons of thriller series Hanna for Amazon Studios and NBC Universal and the feature Luce starring Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts.
Men, in theaters May 20 via A24.
