"You're a poor kid pretending to be rich." IFC Films has debuted the first official teaser trailer for an indie drama titled The Nest, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is the long-awaited follow-up to Martha Marcy May Marlene, which was the feature directorial debut of producer / filmmaker Sean Durkin. In this searing film about wealth and family, Jude Law stars as an ambitious, greedy husband who moves his family to England hoping to strike it rich with a major business deal. Carrie Coon co-stars as his wife, who starts to see through all his bullshit. "Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage." Also starring Charlie Shotwell, Oona Roche, Adeel Akhtar, and Michael Culkin. This has already earned rave reviews, but most of all Carrie Coon deserves awards for her exceptional performance.
