The most infuriating thing about film festivals is knowing that sometimes its most brilliant gems don’t and may never have distribution. We reviewers can cry from the rooftops about how great and richly subversive a certain psychological thriller is. How feminist! How fierce! How fucking cool! But if a distributor doesn’t deign to pick it up, it feels all for naught.

That’s why I literally squealed with glee when Oscilloscope acquired the Tribeca Film Festival stunner Always Shine. Drawing comparison to Brian De Palma and David Lynch’s work, director Sophia Takal’s sophomore effort follows two actresses (Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald) into a getaway weekend in a remote cabin in Big Sur. What might have been a lovely time of bonding and restoration turns dark when professional jealousies pry their friendship apart.

Get a sense of its slick thrills and surreal twists with Always Shines’ first trailer, punctuated with praise from rave reviews.

When I reviewed the film out of the Tribeca, I called it “deliciously wicked, dangerously sexy,” and oh hey look:

Oscilloscope will release Always Shine on December 2nd in select cities. Seek it out.

Kristy Puchko is fucking stoked.
