The NEST is Sean Durkin’s first film as director since the critically acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene (90% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.) It stars Jude Law who is experiencing a career resurgence with roles in Captain Marvel, The Harry Potter spin-off series Fantastic Beasts, and the upcoming third installment of the Sherlock Holmes franchise. It also stars Carrie Coon perhaps best know for her roles in HBO’s The Leftovers and FX’s Fargo, the latter of which earned her an Emmy nomination. For Marvel lovers, she also did mo-cap and provided the voice for Proxima Midnight. Charlie Shotwell, Oona Roche, and Adeel Akhtar round out the cast.
When Durkin makes movies, he makes movies about the things that scare him, and the greed bubbling at The Nest’s core should scare everyone. – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
At the heart of it, behind the wealth signifiers, the chinchilla coats and the earnest class climbing, is a marriage and a family that’s being redefined under the societal pressures of a new environment. – Lindsey Bahr, Washington Post
