Halt and Catch Fire fans, are you missing seeing Cameron on your TV each week? If so, you can check out Mackenize Davis in the film Always Shine, an award-winning, critically acclaimed introspective look into the competitive and hostile nature of toxic female friendships. The chilling thriller, which also stars Caitlin FitzGerald (Rectify, Masters of Sex), will be available exclusively on the Sundance Now streaming service beginning Feb. 2.
The third film from filmmaker Sophia Takal (Wild Canaries and the SXSW award-winning Green), Always Shine is a story about a complicated friendship between two actresses who head out of Los Angeles to Big Sur for the weekend in hopes of reviving their relationship. Once alone in Big Sur, the two women’s suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments boil to the surface, causing them to lose control of their emotions.
Winner of Best Narrative Feature in the 2016 Montclair Film Festival and winner of the Jury Prize at IFF-Boston in 2016, Always Shine was also a well-received darling at the Tribeca and Venice film festivals. The Atlantic calls the film a “sobering female rivalry” and Vogue writes, “It’s an exploration of the impossible tightrope act women perform just to stay within the bounds of acceptable femininity, and it culminates in a nightmarish horror plot.”
Sundance Now offers a 7-day free trial upon sign up at sundancenow.com; after the trail expires, the service costs $6.99 per month or a $59.99 annual membership fee. Sundance Now is accessible via web, iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, and Chromecast.
