The Plot: A student becomes disillusioned by medical school, and finds herself increasingly fascinated by the underground culture surrounding illegal surgeries.
Why It’s A Must-See: The Soska sisters showed enormous potential in their hugely enjoyable self-funded debut Dead Hooker In A Trunk. If the buzz on American Mary is to be believed, they’ve more than fulfilled that early promise.
We’re especially excited to see the sisters directing Katherine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps) as the titular Mary, in a film that moves away from the grindhouse homage of Hooker, and into a far more intense world.
The Soskas have described Mary as their tribute to Asian/Euro shockers – we can’t wait to see it.
