The trailer exhibits Biel as Candy and the way her relationship with Betty Gore, performed by the fantastic Melanie Lynskey, involves a grinding halt.
Betty has a delicate spot for Candy, with the 2 ladies forging a powerful bond in such a short while.
However, issues get difficult when Candy has an affair with Betty’s husband, Allan (Pablo Schreiber), and the pair fear that Betty is about to determine them out.
The trailer is masterfully edited, rising the strain slowly, earlier than we get the revelation that Candy murdered Betty in a brutal vogue.
