Coming Soon - True Nature

True Nature is the debut feature film from writer/director Patrick Steele, and I will have a review here on the Lair very soon. The film is presently in the process of seeking out distribution and is hitting some of the European Film Markets. Personally I am liking what I see from the trailer in what is described as a part drama, part supernatural thriller about a wealthy family whose daughter goes missing, only to reappear a year later.

The Pascal family has it all - wealth, power, privilege - but their picture perfect lives change forever when their college-athlete daughter Marianne disappears one night while running. She mysteriously returns a year later with no memory of what happened to her. Despite being haunted by strange visions and nightmares that encroach upon her waking hours, Marianne struggles to resume a normal life. But other forces are at work and the world the Pascals have built starts to unravel the closer Marianne gets to discovering that somewhere between life and death, lies the truth.

A gripping combination of family drama and supernatural thriller, TRUE NATURE harkens back to the edgy fare of Polanski, Kubrick, and American films of the 1970s. This chilling tale of the American Dream gone awry examines the destructive power of guilt and the desire for redemption in a modern-day family that has been blessed with every advantage, but pays a heavy price for its comfort.
