Netflix has just a released a trailer for its upcoming movie Horse Girl, and there’s a lot to unpack for a 2-minute clip.
As the official description explains, the film stars Alison Brie as Sara, “an awkward woman with a fondness for crafts, horses, and supernatural crime shows, finds her increasingly lucid dreams trickling into her waking life.”
There’s some reason to think there’s more than meets the eye however. The movie is being produced by Mark and Jay Duplass, the duo who’ve helped create projects including mind-benders like Safety Not Guaranteed, The One I Love, Jeff Who Lives at Home and HBO’s Room 104. Though each of those projects involves some keep-audiences-guessing thrills and twists, they also frequently tell surprisingly moving stories centered on outsiders faced with confusing moral circumstances.
Anyway, from the trailer (which involves strange phone calls from the future, horses and possibly even aliens) it’s hard to predict where this one will go.
