Emmy-winner Sarah Paulson (American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson) is a smothering mother with dark secrets in the just-released trailer for Run, a May 8 release from Lionsgate.
The official synopsis for the Mother’s Day release: “They say you can never escape a mother’s love… but for Chloe, that’s not a comfort — it’s a threat. There’s something unnatural, even sinister about the relationship between Chloe (newcomer Kiera Allen) and her mom, Diane (Sarah Paulson). Diane has raised her daughter in total isolation, controlling every move she’s made since birth, and there are secrets that Chloe’s only beginning to grasp. From the visionary writers, producers and director of the breakout film Searching, comes a suspense thriller that shows that when mom gets a little too close, you need to Run.”
The Search Party Production reunites the team behind another succinctly titled film: Searching, the 2018 award winner at Sundance for producers Natalie Qasabian and Sev Ohanian and first-time director Aneesh Chaganty.
Searching, a Sony release, grossed $75.5 million worldwide and earned favorable reviews for its tale of a father tracing his missing daughter through digital breadcrumbs on her laptop. The film, first released in Indonesia, presented its story as if viewers were watching the action on a computer or telephone screen.
