‘Allure’ Trailer: Evan Rachel Wood’s Obsession Is Deadly

As always, we can’t see it all at the Toronto International Film Festival, and Evan Rachel Wood‘s “A Worthy Companion” was a movie that didn’t fit the schedule. We’ll get a chance to catch up as the picture, now titled “Allure,” is headed to cinemas, with a new trailer paving the way.

Directed by Carlos and Jason Sanchez, and co-starring Julia Sarah Stone, Denis O’Hare, and Maxim Roy, the story follows a house cleaner whose involvement with her employer’s daughter takes a very dark turn. Here’s the official synopsis:

Laura (Evan Rachel Wood) works as a house cleaner for her father’s company but her personal life is not so pristine. Rough around the edges, looking for love in all the wrong places, her heartbreaking behavior points to hardships of the past. One day on the job, in yet another house, Laura meets Eva (Julia Sarah Stone), a quiet teenager unhappy with her disciplined life. In Eva, Laura rediscovers an innocent tenderness. In Laura, Eva finds a thrilling rebel who can bring her into unknown territories. The mutual attraction soon morphs into obsession as Laura convinces Eva to run away and secretly come live with her, perilously raising the stakes for the young, impressionable girl as Laura’s emotional instability becomes increasingly clear. As their world closes in, they must unearth certain truths to find a way out.

“Allure” opens in cinemas and hits On Demand on March 16th.
