23:15 – Feature Film – PREVENGE (1:28:00)
Written and Directed by Alice Lowe, UK, 2017
A pitch black, wryly British comedy, PREVENGE follows Ruth (Alice Lowe), a pregnant woman on a killing spree that’s as funny as it is vicious. It’s her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth’s actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.
