From the dazzling imagination that brought you It Follows and The Myth of
the American Sleepover comes a delirious neo-noir thriller about one man's
search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders, and disappearances
in his East L.A. neighborhood.
Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33 year old who discovers a mysterious
woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment's swimming
pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles
to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the
murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.
From writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes a sprawling and unexpected
detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens-dog killers,
aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia
hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex
workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires
floating above (and underneath) it all.
Mining a noir tradition extending from Kiss Me Deadly and The Long Goodbye
to Chinatown and Mulholland Drive, Mitchell uses the topography of Los
Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and
secret codes buried within the things we love.
