Picking out your first home as a married couple is likely a huge choice for folks. If you plan on having kids, you need to make sure you’re near good schools. You have to look at crime statistics. There’s also the idea of budget and neighborhood. Long story short, it’s a big deal. For a young couple in “Vivarium,” this big decision turns into a twisted nightmare.
As seen in the new trailer for “Vivarium,” a young couple is taking a look at a new starter home in what seems to be a neighborhood ripped from a suburban nightmare. However, when the couple attempts to leave, they quickly figure out that they’re stuck in this neighborhood with no hope of escaping. Well, that’s not entirely true, as there is one hope for leaving the nightmare — a young boy.
“Vivarium” stars Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots. The film is directed by Lorcan Finnegan, who previously directed the film “Without Name.”
It’s been almost a year since we saw the film at Cannes and in our review, we said, “Finnegan’s ambitions are unmistakably cinematic in scope. All the more startling from a filmmaker on the starting blocks of his career, “Vivarium” impresses with its clarity of vision and originality.”
As mentioned, “Vivarium” premiered last spring and will finally start its rollout around the world in March. A North American date has yet to be announced by Saban Films.
Here’s the short synopsis:
In search of a starter home, a young couple follow a mysterious estate agent and get trapped in a strange housing development
