Sam Rockwell, Vera Farmiga, Jacob Kogan, Celia Weston, Dallas Roberts, Michael McKean / Fiction / English
We need to talk about Joshua...
Brad (Sam Rockwell) and Abby (Vera Farmiga) live a sleek, high-end Manhattan life - and if their super-intelligent, musically gifted ten-year-old son Joshua (Jacob Kogan) is something of a puzzle to his less cerebral father, he certainly seems contented. That is, until the arrival of a new baby sibling... As Abby succumbs to violent post-partum depression, and peculiar household accidents increase, Brad begins to suspect the worst about his elder child - and an elegant psychological drama morphs into a wickedly enjoyable horror thriller with shades of Rosemary's Baby and The Omen. A brilliant cast skillfully negotiates unsettling shifts in tone, and Benoît Debie's ravishing cinematography adds a dreamlike gloss.
