Scorsese Gets Quoted in Final 'A Field in England' Trailer & Poster
"Audacious and wildly brilliant - a stunning cinematic experience." That's some high praise from the master himself, Mr. Marty Scorsese. Drafthouse Films has debuted one final trailer for Ben Wheatley's mind-fuck period black & white drama A Field in England, which hit UK theaters last year and is finally hitting US cinemas in February. The trailer, and the final poster (also below), feature quotes from Martin Scorsese praising the "audacious" concept of this thriller about Civil War confederates who end up trapped in a field filled with mushrooms. This is one of the trippiest, but wholly unique cinematic experiences one can have, as echoed in Jeremy's review, but it's worth experiencing if you haven't journeyed into this field once before.
A Field in England is directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay co-written by Wheatley and Amy Jump. The story follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. As they are captured by O'Neil, an alchemist, they are forced to aid him in finding a hidden treasure he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia as it becomes clear the treasure might not simply be gold. Included below is the latest official poster for A Field in England, featuring another Martin Scorsese quote.
Wheatley's A Field in England first opened in the UK last July, and will finally be released by Drafthouse Films in the US this year. The film arrives in theaters and VOD starting February 7th. For more visit here.
