Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain reunite in Mothers' Instinct [bande-annonce]

The two Hollywood actresses are on the bill for this American remake of Duelles by Benoît Delhomme.

“Two best friends and neighbors, Alice and Céline, both lead a seemingly idyllic life in perfect harmony. This is suddenly shattered by a tragic accident. Guilt, suspicion and paranoia will then shatter the relationship of the two women.”

It's to the disturbing rhythm of the nursery rhyme “Did You Ever See a Lassie?” revised for the occasion, that the trailer of Mothers' Instinct reveals the sixties atmosphere of a very American suburb, suddenly tainted by the accidental death of a child and a cloud. thriller irrepressible. A film about two mothers, and especially about two women, who, faced with tragedy, must relearn how to live together.

“Of course it's a different film, but it's the idea of ​​these two actresses coming together and playing… the tension is very interesting.she specifies to IndieWire. Thank goodness Annie and I love each other, so it's a little different than that experience.”
