The Nest

by Sean Durkin Gala Premieres

“It's not your job to worry. Leave that to your husband,” is the advice Allison receives from her mother when she moves involuntarily from the American suburbs to the English countryside with her husband Rory and their two children in the mid-1980s. Rory, an ambitious entrepreneur, sees in his home country the chance to make big money. Clinging to his own illusions, he rents a spacious but gloomy country estate with room for Allison's horses. But soon the family threatens to collapse under the weight of an unaffordable lifestyle and in- creasing isolation. Wearied by their own lies, Rory and Allison are hurtling towards seemingly inevitable ruin. THE NEST is a gripping psychodrama that guides us into the abysmal life of a yuppie couple attempting to keep up appearances, while gradually crumbling under their own incessant lies. Jude Law and Carrie Coon embody the lead characters with virtuosity.
