A new official poster for Hulu’s comedy thriller and Searchlight Pictures entitled Fresh just released. This film, which depicts the sights and dark sides of modern dating, tells the story of a young woman played by Daisy Edgar-Jones who finds out that her new boyfriend (Sebastian Stan) has a very unusual passion for food. This dark thriller will be released on March 4th.
The poster itself features the faces of the characters played by Edgar-Jones and Stan as the main focus, bathed in a bright red color reminiscent of blood. Between their faces is the title of the film displayed in large floating white letters resembling a plastic bag, which is fitting because the two characters meet at the convenience store in the film. The blood-red design and ominous title lettering suggest that bloodshed is likely to occur in the film.
Previously Fresh has made its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival which is quite a rave. The official trailer was released by Hulu a few days ago, so the streaming service seems to be giving the film the promotion it deserves after appearing at the prestigious festival.
Fresh is the directorial debut of Mimi Cave, written by Lauryn Kahn. The film stars Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Sebastian Stan (Pam and Tommy), Jojo T. Gibbs (Twenties), Charlotte Le Bon (Anthropoid, The Hundred-Foot Journey), Andrea Bang (Luce), and Dayo. Okeniyi (Runner Runner, The Spectacular Now).
Here’s the official synopsis of the film:
“The film follows Noa, who meets charming Steve at a convenience store and – out of frustration with a dating app – takes a chance and gives him his number. After their first date, Noa falls in love and accepts Steve’s invitation for a romantic weekend getaway. Only to discover that her new lover has been hiding some unusual tastes. ”
Starring Edgar-Jones and Stan with a romcom thriller as the wrapper, Fresh will probably be one of the titles of films that must be watched in the next month. In addition to these two main stars, this film is also supported by Jonica T. Gibbs, Charlotte Le Bon, Dayo Okeniyi, Andrea Bang, and Brett Dier.
