‘I Care a Lot’ trailer is out now and it looks exciting.
Netflix has released the first official trailer for ‘I Care a Lot,’ a sneaky dark comedy film starring Rosamund Pike in the lead.
The film originally premiered at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival and garnered rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.
Pike, best known for her Oscar-nominated role in David Fincher’s 2014 ‘Gone Girl’ plays a corrupt court-appointed guardian Marla Grayson who uses the law to the benefit of herself by draining the savings of her elderly clients.
As per Collider, the official synopsis for ‘I Care a Lot’ is as follows: “Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means.”
“It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business partner and lover Fran (Eiza Gonzalez) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (two-time Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest) – a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play – one that’s neither fair nor square.”
The film also stars Eiza Gonzalez, Dianne Wiest, Peter Dinklage, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Chris Messina, and Macon Blair in the lead.
Written and directed by J Blakeson, the crime thriller flick is produced by Teddy Schwarzman through his banner Black Bear and Blakeson’s Sugar November, alongside Ben Stillman and Michael Heimler, per ComingSoon.Net.
‘I Care a Lot’ arrives on Netflix on February 19, 2021.
