FOE review

Saoirse Ronan

After providing the raw fodder for Charlie Kaufman’s characteristically cryptic I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS, Canadian novelist Iain Reid serves up more brain-bender material in Garth Davis’ FOE. Anchored by emotionally raw performances from Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal, with Aaron Pierre as a stranger bringing equal parts seductive charm and understated menace, this brooding psychological sci-fi about a dying planet and a floundering marriage.

Mescal and Ronan in FOE

Saoirse Ronan

Paul Mescal and Saoirse Ronan face a dangerous future in FOE. Mescal and Ronan portray Junior and Henrietta, a married couple living in a rural farmhouse 40 or so years into the future. The vast majority of the film takes place in their home and stays with them through an unpredictable, tragic journey, sprinkled with glimmers of hope and punctuated by a reveal that compels a rewatch. Amazon Studios will release FOE in theaters on October 6.
