|RAW - Official Trailer|
Release Date: March 10th, 2017
Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At sixteen she’s a brilliant student starting out at veterinary school where she experiences a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. Desperate to fit in, she strays from her family principles and eats RAW meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge…
Director Jula Ducournau described her film to Indiewire: 'I want to hear this particular audience reacting.
'I want to see where they will be reacting. I am very curious.
'It’s like being judged by my peers, because myself, I am a huge genre and horror buff.'
The French film has garnered much acclaim on the festival circuit, winning the FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
The film stars Garance Marillier and it will debut on March 10 in the United States after its acquisition by Focus Features.
And for those who want an even more grisly taste of what to expect from the film - which has been given a hard R rating by the MPAA for aberrant behavior, bloody and grisly images, strong sexuality, nudity, language and drug use/partying - a red-band trailer was released too.
