Nothing will prepare you for this bold and bloody revenge film from French newcomer Coralie Fargeat – who demonstrates that the female gaze comes in all ways.
Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz, Rings) is enjoying a supposed romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend, which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly — and viciously — intensifies; culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and re-emerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge.
A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, Revenge gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.
