Overview

Michelle (Alex Essoe) meets Linda (Precious Chong) at a yoga class. Linda’s wide-eyed enthusiasm is clearly off-putting, but Michelle’s aversion to conflict makes it difficult for her to brush off the increasingly pushy woman. Things escalate once Linda asks Michelle to redecorate her home and refuses to let her leave. Written by director Zach Gayne and the film’s two stars, Precious Chong and Alex Essoe (who wowed us with her breakthrough performance in STARRY EYES back in 2014), HOMEWRECKER has an unusual tone informed by late 1980s pop sensibilities. With the energy of a Jane Fonda workout tape, the movie escalates into the uncanny, especially as it deals with gendered expectations surrounding femininity and romance.

Length 86 minutes

Alex Essoe | Precious Chong | Kris Siddiqi

Viewing Notes

My second feature of virtual Chattanooga Film Festival.

I laughed a lot during the setup before it gets real uncomfortable. Alex Essoe is really good and seems to get these kind of roles and I feel for her. Precious Chong does a very good sociopathic stalker type. This would be a fun one to see with a big crowd.
