"I'm worried about her." Factory 25 has revealed an official trailer for an indie film titled Superior, which initially premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last year. This grainy, retro indie is about a woman on the run who returns to her hometown to hide out with her identical twin sister, Vivian, which alters the trajectory of both their lives. Described as an "Almodovarian psychodrama" with touches of Lynch and De Palma and 80s psychological thriller cinema. She realizes that she can pass as her sister and gets into even more trouble pretending to be her while trying to stay out of any trouble. Starring Alessandra Mesa and Anamari Mesa as sisters Marian and Vivian; along with Pico Alexander, Jake Hoffman, and Stanley Simons. This has a very specific pastiche that will some will be very attracted to, but for others it may just be grueling. But there's intricacy in the two lead's performances playing off each other throughout the film.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Erin Vassilopoulos's Superior, direct from YouTube:
On the run, Marian (Alessandra Mesa) returns to her hometown to hide out with her identical twin sister, Vivian (Ani Mesa), and in doing so alters the trajectory of both their lives. Superior is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Erin Vassilopoulos, making her feature directorial debut after other short films and music videos previously. The screenplay is written by Erin Vassilopoulos and Alessandra Mesa. It's adapted from Vassilopoulos' own short film in 2015. Produced by Ben Cohen, Grant Curatola, and Patrick Donovan. This initially premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last year. Factory 25 will release Vassilopoulos' film Superior in select US theaters + on VOD starting on March 25th, 2022 this year. Is anyone into this?
