Run Sweetheart Run

About

Timid and hardworking single mother Shari (Ella Balinska, Charlie’s Angels) brushes away hesitations and decides to dip her toe back into the dating scene after being spurred on by her coworkers. She’s thrilled when her boss sets her up on a blind date with Ethan (Pilou Asbæk, Game of Thrones), who initially proves every bit as charming and magnetic as his photo. Ethan can’t hide his true nature for very long though—and when things quickly turn sinister, Shari must find a way to escape. Forced to navigate the streets of LA after hours on foot, Shari learns Ethan is far more connected and violent than she ever imagined.

Writer-director Shana Feste (The Greatest, 2009 Sundance Film Festival) returns to the Festival with a twisted, daring horror film that blazes its own trail, unafraid to shatter expectations as it invites audiences to descend into a traumatizing, blood-riddled nightmare. Balinska picks up speed as a woman who discovers that her ingenuity and sheer determination to survive may just make her a match for the worst evil the patriarchy can muster.
