Main Trailer


  • "Oldroyd lulled me into a false sense of expectation and then dropped a bomb into his movie that completely shifted the ground under my feet. I can't remember the last time I was so energized by a surprise."
    - Slashfilm
  • "Oldroyd is clearly a master assembler of styles, but he never lets his vision outshine the wonderful central performances at the movie’s core."
    - IndieWire
  • "Rippling with sly humor and a bold command of the tropes of classic Hitchcockian suspense, this is a twisty and beguiling original, led by contrasting but expertly synced performances from Thomasin McKenzie and Anne Hathaway."
    - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "Oldroyd attacks with a pace that makes his plot twists more shocking and shows an economy that harks back to the golden age of noir."
    - Screen Daily
  • "The formal rigor that made Oldroyd’s “Lady Macbeth” such a striking debut is in evidence here throughout, but this time that directorial precision is applied to a narrative of bold, even garish ambition, which EILEEN conceals, along with its unhinged heart, beneath a controlled, placid exterior."
