The 2023 Tribeca Festival begins this Wednesday June 7th and runs through Sunday June 18th. Our Gadi Elkon got to chat with numerous filmmakers about their world premieres at the festival this year. Here is SOMEWHERE QUIET’s Writer/Director Olivia West Lloyd discussing her feature film debut.
Meg (Jennifer Kim) is trying to readjust to normal life after recently being involved in a heinous abduction. To recenter herself, she takes a trip to the woods by the coast in Cape Cod with her husband Scott (Kentucker Audley) to stay at his wealthy family’s countryside compound. An excursion like this offers the kind of peace that Meg deserves to regain her sense of normalcy — but those plans get swiftly disrupted when Scott’s upper-class cousin Madeline (Marin Ireland) arrives unannounced. Madeline’s insertion into their activities causes Meg’s recent traumatic memories to resurface through eerie hallucinations and nightmares. While Scott tries to attend to the emotionally fraught Meg, she begins to clash with Madeline’s aristocratic personality. The conflict brings out passive-aggressive behavior that makes Meg question her sanity while also coming to terms with the truth behind her kidnapping.
SOMEWHERE QUIET has its World Premiere at Tribeca this Thursday June 8th as part of the US Narrative Competition. Writer/Director Olivia West Lloyd talked with our Gadi Elkon about the festival, the haunting music and the look of the film, the brilliance of Jennifer Kim and so much more.
