I Care a Lot will be released in the UK on Amazon Prime Video this February, and a new trailer gives us a first look at the dark comic thriller.
Starring Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, Eiza González and screen icon Dianne Wiest, the film had its debut last year at the Toronto Film Festival. Netflix promptly snapped up the US rights to the picture, but STXinternational acquired international rights on the film, as part of its exclusive output deal with Black Bear. Amazon Prime Video will be its exclusive home in the UK.
Written and directed J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed), the film follows Marla Grayson (Pike), a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover Fran (González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair, nor square.
“I Care a Lot is an excellent addition to Amazon Prime Video’s extensive catalog of quality films, like Palm Springs and Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, brought directly and exclusively to Prime members,” said Brad Beale, Vice President, Worldwide Content Acquisition, Prime Video. “World-class performances by the very talented Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage and Dianne Wiest are guaranteed to take Amazon Prime Video audiences on a hugely entertaining journey of power games, revenge and deceit.”
The film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy and New Zealand on 19th February. Here’s the trailer:
