Psychological thriller Nancy on DVD & Digital in November

3 October 2018

Starring a career-defining performance from Andrea Riseborough as the titular anti-hero, psychological thriller Nancy will premiere at BFI London Film Festival on 13 October, ahead of a release on DVD and Digital Download in November from Studiocanal.

Directed by debutant Christina Choe – Winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance Film Festival 2018, and nominated at this year’s Film by the Sea International Film Festival, Hamburg, Sitges and Deauville Film Festivals – Nancy traces the way truth and fantasy bleed into one other in the mind of a woman on the fringes of society, who is increasingly convinced she was kidnapped as a child.

Craving connection with others, Nancy (Andrea Riseborough – The Death of Stalin, Mindhorn) creates elaborate pseudonyms on the internet. When she meets couple Leo (Steve Buscemi – Fargo, Reservoir Dogs) and Ellen (J. Smith Cameron – Christine, The Good Wife) whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, fact and fiction begin to blur in Nancy’s mind. As their bond deepens she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents and reasonable doubts give way to wilful belief until the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality.

Unique, thoughtful and disturbing – Nancy is a rare portrayal of a flawed but authentic female character, illustrated with striking cinematic realism.

Nancy DVD

Described by Indiewire as "A twisted and wholly satisfying psychological thriller," Nancy will be released on UK DVD and Digital Download by Studiocanal on 5 November 2018 at a yet to-be-confirmed RRP.
