Chained For Life

1 Hr. 31 Min.
Not Rated
Screening format: DCP



Hollywood's representation issues are tackled head-on in the funny and humane, award-winning festival darling Chained for Life. Teeth's Jess Weixler stars as a young ingenue working on a European art-house horror film shot in a partially abandoned hospital. She strikes up a tentative friendship with her disfigured co-star (a wonderful performance from Adam Pearson, last seen being seduced into an inky void by Scarlett Johansson in 2014's Under the Skin), as the characters in the lurid B-film they're working on—replete with a mad German doctor performing secret medical experiments—pursue a romance.
