Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.
“With Elisabeth Moss brilliantly playing horror author Shirley Jackson like a volcano on the verge of eruption, this teasing, spellbinding psychodrama from Josephine Decker preps us to expect the unexpected. Fasten your seatbelts.” Peter Travers ROLLING STONE
“Nothing less than a masterpiece, a powerhouse of performance, style and subtext. It is witchy and wordy and bracingly feminist; it is disorienting and strangely erotic and unpredictable.” Katie Walsh TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
“Director Josephine Decker’s Shirley is a riveting glimpse into the complicated life of the acclaimed writer driven by a memorable performance by Elisabeth Moss.” Rebecca Murray SHOWBIX JUNKIES
“Elevated by outstanding work from Elisabeth Moss, Shirley pays tribute to its subject’s pioneering legacy with a biopic that ignores the commonly accepted boundaries of the form.” Rotten Tomatoes Critics Concensus
