The first trailer for director Charlie Startton’s upcoming drama In Secret has been released. Based on the Emile Zola novel Therese Raquin and previously titled Therese, the film stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young woman trapped in an arranged marriage who conspires with her lover to dispose of her sickly cousin husband. Oscar Isaac plays the lover, Harry Potter’s Tom Felton plays the husband, and Jessica Lange plays Olsen’s aunt. I caught the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and while the performances are solid, it becomes a bit of a chore when the story starts revolving around two terrible characters feeling terrible about being terrible. This trailer pits the film as more of a thriller, but in actuality it’s more of a psychological drama.
