Director: Carlo Mirabella-Davis Run Time: 94 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2019 Starring: Haley Bennett, Austin Stowell, Denis O'Hare Director Carlo Mirabella-Davis in attendance Pregnant housewife Hunter (Haley Bennett) suddenly develops a case of pica—a psychological disorder involving the desire to consume inedible objects. The more her husband and his family try to stop her compulsions, the gruesomely deeper she falls into this harmful obsession until her perfect home becomes a patriarchal prison. Carlo Mirabella-Davis' metaphorically rich feature debut is a body horror film that feels utterly essential from its timely commentary down to Bennett's jaw-dropping lead performance.
