She Will clip: Alice Krige has dark thoughts in Charlotte Colbert film

Last Updated on August 10, 2021

Charlotte Colbert's feature directorial debut She Will is set to have its world premiere at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland tomorrow, August 5th, and today we've gotten our hands on a clip from the film that gives an idea of just how creepy and strange things will get in it. You can check it out in the embed above.

Written by Colbert and Kitty Percy, She Will explores the story of 

Veronica Ghent (Alice Krige) who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt).  She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.

Alice Krige (Ghost Story), Kota Eberhardt (X-Men: Dark Phoenix), Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie's Halloween), and Rupert Everett (Cemetery Man) star.

She Will was produced by Jessica Malik and Bob Last, with Edward R. Pressman, Sam Pressman, Ed Clarke, Sam Cryer, Hannah Leader, Thorsten Schumacher, and Sara Woodhatch serving as executive producers.

Colbert has previously written and directed several short films, co-wrote the film Leave to Remain with director Bruce Goodison, and crafted the story for the Jaron Albertin film Weightless. Colbert had this to say about She Will

The story of She Will has themes I’ve always been interested in within my practice and within my life How trauma blurs our experience of reality and time, how nature holds so much solace, how we all carry within us the muscle memory of those who came before and those who will come after, how the infinitely small, like a cell, contains the same patterns as the universe. How meaning and perspective and reality and time are all such fragile constructs that can break at any time. The genre of psychological horror seems to allow more artistic freedom than drama. It also at its heart fittingly captures those existential feelings."

It will be interesting to see the reactions to She Will that come out of the Locarno screening. We'll keep you updated on the film's progress as it makes its way out into the world. Rocket Science is handling worldwide distribution sales.
