Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation) partners with flourishing studio A24 once more and departs from his usual realm of sci-fi to inject his otherworldly intrigue into horror drama Men.
Harper (the excellent Jessie Buckley) is grieving the loss of her ex-husband, having seen him fall past her window to his death. She seeks solace at a countryside retreat, in a beautiful B&B with picturesque gardens and rural charm. Upon arrival she is greeted by her 'innkeeper' (Rory Kinnear) – an unnerving presence though you can’t quite put your finger on why.
As Harper explores the village, his face appears over and over again: is she being followed or is it all in her mind?
