In “The Nest”, Durkin directs Jude Law (Captain Marvel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword…), Carrie Coon (Avenger: Infinity War, Kin…), and Michael Culkin (Charlie Mortdecai…).
Selected for Sundance 2020, “The Nest” has won 3 awards at the Deauville Film Festival 2020: the Grand Prize, the Revelation Prize, and the Critic’s Prize.
In the 1980’s, Rory (Law), a former broker now turned ambitious entrepreneur, convinces Allison (Coon), his American wife, and their two children to leave the comfort of a prosperous-looking suburb in the United-States to move to England, his birth country. Convinced he will make a fortune, Rory rents an old manor in the countryside where his wife will be able to ride a horse. But the hope of a profitable new beginning quickly fades away and the isolation starts tearing the family equilibrium apart.
