Meet Jane, a dark psychological potboiler directed by Sabrina Jaglom (Home Again, Unforgettable) that makes its UK premiere on 13 February from 101 Films.
Spellbinding and shocking, this tense and poignant thriller features beautiful cinematography and mesmerising performances – and asks the question: How far are you willing to go to succeed?
Seemingly perfect and incredibly ambitious high school senior Olivia (Madelaine Petsch) struggles with grief and anxiety following her best friend Jane’s (Chloe Yu) suicide. Now she is consumed by her ambition to get into the prestigious and highly competitive Stanford. But alarm bells start to ring when new girl Camille (Nina Bloomgarden – Fatherhood) arrives and threatens her place on the debate team… which could scupper her entire future.
Reconnecting with old friend Izzy – played by Chlöe Bailey from the successful five-time Grammy-nominated sibling R&B group Chlöe x Halle – the two decide to dig up dirt on Camille and when they discover they can access Jane’s old social media profile, they use it to wreak havoc on anyone and everyone who stands in their way.
What starts out as seemingly innocent taunting quickly descends into something far more sinister. Principal Rhodes – deftly played by Academy-Award® winning actor Melissa Leo – attempts to help Olivia, but as she experiences increasingly frightening panic attacks, things spiral out of control… and she is forced to confront her darkest impulses. Can she stop the destruction… before it goes too far?
As unnerving as it is enthralling and undeniably relevant, this eerie and evocative feature will have audiences clambering to block and delete those old social networks.
