From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller: SERENITY.
I had the opportunity to chat with writer and director Steven Knight about the plot, the cast, and more. SERENITY opens in theaters everywhere January 25th.
About the film
Baker Dill, played by Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey, is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen, portrayed by Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway, tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband, played by Jason Clarke, by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems. The film also stars Diane Lane, Djimon Houson e Jeremy Strong.
