Elisabeth Moss Portrays A Powerful Picture Of Author Shirley Jackson. Have a Look.
The story takes place sometime after Shirley has earned herself a name after her weirdly addictive story The Lottery has been published in the New Yorker. In another setting, a young woman named Rose is reading the story and seems to experience a rather extreme the rush of emotions. Take a look at the trailer of the film that talks about a secret that might be maddening!
The story is limited to most of the household spaces as such, but the depth of the film goes a long way. We get to see Shirley sharing a rather problematic relationship with her college professor husband Stanley, Stanley commits infidelity and that’s something that Shirley agrees to although reluctantly. After that, it seems like chaos is unleashed or is it just a wild thought of a lost writer?

When Rose and Fred are invited by Stanley to stay with them while Fred teaches at the college, there’s intense and somewhat disturbing turns of events that take place. Rose is both fascinated and disturbed by Shirley’s personality but there’s just more to what meets the eyes! The scenes are somewhat eye-catching or some kind of a bitter truth that Shirley overlooks with time. There is an overwhelming sense of the madness that is looming large on all!
