Sam talks to writer-director Coralie Fargeat and actor Matilda Lutz about their new film Revenge, in cinemas now.
Nothing will prepare you for this bold and bloody revenge film from French newcomer Coralie Fargeat – who demonstrates that the female gaze comes in all ways.
Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz) is enjoying a supposed romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly — and viciously — intensifies; culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge.
A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, Revenge gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.
