God’s Creatures, the upcoming psychological drama from A24, will star Paul Mescal (Normal People) and Emily Watson (Chernobyl). As God’s Creatures unfold in a windswept fishing village in Ireland, Aileen and Brian’s relationship deteriorates between them as Brian returns home after spending seven years abroad.
Brian’s ex-flame accuses him of an appalling act, and Aileen is caught between protecting her son and her own moral compass. In addition to Aisling Franciosi (Game of Thrones), Declan Conlon, Marion O’Dwyer, and Toni O’Rourke, the film features an impressive supporting cast.
The new official trailer for God’s Creatures, released by A24, focuses on the leading mother and son pair, who descend into near-madness. Aileen describes the brooding atmosphere in her town in a chilling voiceover as she has sleepless nights until her son Brian returns after spending years away, much to her surprise.
After Brian’s former flame accuses him of cheating, a police officer proceeds to knock on their door looking for him, launching an investigation as a result. As a result, Aileen must choose between her family and moral duties, which will have a lasting impact on her community.
Mescal shot to fame after starring in Normal People, a romantic drama miniseries opposite Daisy Edgar-Jones (Fresh). Having appeared in the Netflix movie The Lost Daughter in 2021, God’s Creatures marks his first feature film role.
The English actress is best known for her role in HBO’s Chernobyl miniseries, for which she received an Emmy nomination. This year’s Cannes Film Festival premiered God’s Creatures to critical acclaim. It holds a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score. It is promising that both sides of the camera have proven talent.
