Read the official synopsis for Alex Garland’s ‘Men’ below.
In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears.
In an interview with Empire, Rory Kinnear told his roles in Alex Garland’s ‘Men’
“I play nine or ten different characters,” he added “Some are actively threatening, some of them seem fairly benign, but all of them personify different aspects of the male tendency to belittle or spite or slight. And each one had to be as fully rounded as the next, even though some of them have a very limited amount of screen-time. The threat they represent, or their lack of self-awareness, had to come from a specific place within them.”
Men will hit theaters on May 20, 2022, by A24.
