Love, lust, betrayal and maybe murder play at the center of Netflix’s upcoming psychological thriller Earthquake Bird. Alicia Vikander, Riley Keough and Naoki Kobayashi bring steeliness and sex appeal to this enticing adaptation of Susanna Jones’s novel. And we’re getting a tantalizing taste of what heralded director Wash Westmoreland has in store with this slick and trippy first trailer.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
A psychologically unsettling and atmospheric thriller set in 1989 Tokyo from director Wash Westmoreland (Colette, Still Alice), Earthquake Bird follows Lucy Fly (Alicia Vikander), an enigmatic expat haunted by a painful past, who enters into an intense relationship with Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), a handsome yet similarly troubled local photographer. Lucy’s imperturbable exterior begins to crack when a naive newcomer, Lily Bridges (Riley Keough), becomes entangled in their lives and ends up missing - suspected dead.
Earthquake Bird will have exclusive theatrical engagements beginning November 1, then hit Netflix on November 15.
