Yellow wallpaper has always been a no go for me...
...Prior to its World Premiere during the upcoming Cinequest film festival, a trailer has been released for the debut feature from director Kevin Pontuti, The Yellow Wallpaper, which is "a dark and disturbing contemporary adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s well-known and controversial gothic feminist horror story about patriarchy and mental health."
In The Yellow Wallpaper, written by Alexandra Loreth and Kevin Pontuti:
"Jane, a writer and young mother, is prescribed a rest treatment by her physician husband John, who takes her to a remote country estate for the summer. She becomes obsessed with the peculiar yellow wallpaper in the bedroom he has chosen for her. In her isolation, she secretly writes about a woman trapped in the wallpaper—that she must free."
The film stars Alexandra Loreth, Joe Mullins, Clara Hart, and Jeanne O’Connor.
The Yellow Wallpaper will have its World Premiere on March 20th at 7:00 p.m. during the Cinequest film festival. Buy tickets here.
