Aubrey Plaza stars as a filmmaker in Lawrence Michael Levine’s genre-bending Sundance hit. At a remote lake house in the Adirondack Mountains, a couple entertains Allison, an out-of-town guest looking for inspiration in her filmmaking. The group quickly falls into a calculated game of desire, manipulation, and jealousy, unaware of how dangerously convoluted their lives will soon become in Allison’s pursuit of a work of art, which blurs the boundaries between autobiography and invention.
‘Fueled by surprise and layered with an intoxicating dream logic, Black Bear is the kind of discovery you hope for at Sundance: wholly unexpected, compellingly demanding, and utterly unique. Plaza is ferocious at the movie’s center.’ - David Canfield, Entertainment Weekly
‘This is a darkly playful deconstruction of the indie filmmaking process that digs into the artist-muse dynamic and the power structures in relationships, constantly teasing the viewer as to what’s real and what’s part of the writer character’s imagination.’ - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
