Fred and Rose (Logan Lerman and Odessa Young) move to a small Vermont college town in pursuit of a job for Fred as an assistant professor of literature. The young couple receives an offer for free room and board from professor Stanley Hyman (Michael Stuhlbarg), as long as Rose agrees to spend time cleaning up the home and looking after his wife, acclaimed horror author Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss). On the the precipice of writing her masterpiece, Jackson bristles at the disruption of her meticulous routine, which serves to further heighten tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. Soon, Stanley and Shirley, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begin to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple.
Celebrated independent filmmaker Josephine Decker follows up her singular Sundance breakthrough Madeline’s Madeline with this award-winning biographical portrait, based on a novel by Susan Scarf Merrell and screenplay by Sarah Gubbins. Shirley is a fresh take on the period drama, full of contemporary intrigue, boldly expressionistic style and memorable performances from a brilliant ensemble cast.
