Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Actress Romola Garai (ATONEMENT, DIRTY DANCING: HAVANA NIGHTS) has turned her attention to directing, with her feature directorial debut film being the atmospheric horror-thriller AMULET, which premiered to critical and audience acclaim in the Midnight section at Sundance. It stars Carla Juri, Alec Secareanu, Imelda Staunton and Angeliki Papoulia, and is about

Tomaz (Secareanu), a former soldier who is left homeless after an accident and takes refuge in the decaying home of Magda (Juri), a lonely young woman in desperate need of help as she cares for her ailing mother. At first hesitant, Magda soon welcomes Tomaz into their lives. But as he gets closer to and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz notices strange and unexplainable phenomena. Something seems very wrong with the mysterious old woman who never leaves the top floor, and Tomaz begins to suspect that Magda may in fact be a prisoner to her otherworldly bidding.

Meanwhile, AMULET has been acquired by Magnet Releasing – the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures – and will be releasing the film in North America on July 24th in theaters and on demand.
