Katherine Hughes in Trailer for Bob Shaye's Music Thriller 'Ambition'
"You need to pull it together." Shout Studios has unveiled a trailer for the "gripping, suspenseful thriller" titled Ambition, the latest film directed by producer Bob Shaye. In Ambition, Katherine Hughes stars as a young aspiring violinist preparing for a competition. She's incredibly confidant and gets wrapped up in a frightening trap that she has to find her way out of. It raises the question: If an insane person is telling a story, is it real? That sounds like quite an intriguing introduction to this film. The full cast includes Sonoya Mizuno, Giles Matthey, Kyanna Simone, Jared Bankens, Deneen Tyler, Dylan McNamara, and Jordan Salmon, with a special appearance by Lin Shaye. Ambition is said to "create a world where desire and revenge converge into a questionable reality." Seems a bit like Black Swan, but with even more horror.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Bob Shaye's Ambition, direct from Shout's YouTube:
In the gripping, suspenseful thriller Ambition, Jude (Hughes) is an intense, driven musician preparing for the biggest performance of her life-but her ambition could end up killing her.
