Myriad Pictures picks up ‘Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes’ and releases new trailer.
Myriad Pictures has acquired international distribution rights to the Jessica Biel-starrer Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes. The film, written and directed by Francesca Gregorini, premiered this year at Sundance.
A bit of a Stoker vibe there, we’re feeling, although it’s obviously just coincidental since the films were in parallel production. A slightly chilly psychological drama, it’s about troubled teen Emanuel (Scodelario), whose mother died in childbirth, developing an obsession with neighbour Linda (Biel) for whom she helps babysit.
Early reports about the film revealed that its general premise was something strange specifically to do with that baby, but since the trailer goes nowhere near the subject, that may constitute some sort of spoiler. Suffice to say that there’s more going on in the film than is immediately apparent from the clip.
