Little Joe (15)

2019, UK/Austria/Ger, Dir. Jessica Hausner, 105 minutes

If you could buy a pretty houseplant that made you feel happy you would, wouldn’t you? Two plant breeders are working on just such a project. Alice (Emily Beecham) and Chris (Ben Whishaw) are ambitious and competitive and keen to get the stunning crimson-flowered plant to the market place. But the plant, named Little Joe by Alice – after her son, may have other, unintended effects. An unsettling and chilling sci-fi with stunning camera work and a haunting score.
