Lost Girls, starring Thomasin McKenzie premieres at Sundance
The film will be released worldwide on Netflix March 13th
Lost Girls, starring Thomasin McKenzie and directed by two time Oscar nominee, Liz Garbus has just premiered at Sundance with a worldwide release on Netflix on March 13th.
Based on the New York Magazine story and eventual novel by Robert Kolker, the film follows Mari Gilbert, the mother of a missing young woman whose search for her daughter uncovers more than a dozen unsolved murders of sex workers in a gated community near the outer banks of Long Island.
Thomasin plays one of Mari’s daughters, who helps her Mother join up with family members of the other victims in a quest for justice. Indiewire recognizes Thomasin as one of the stand out roles and Variery writes, her character is “played with a quiet accusatory fire”.
Director Liz Garbus, known for her work on ‘The Farm: Angola USA’, ‘What happened, Miss Simone’ and ‘Girlhood’ decided to turn the material of this story into the first narrative feature of her career.
At the end of 2019, Thomasin featured in the Taika Waititi directed film, ‘Jojo Rabbit’. The film was nominated for six awards at the Golden Globes including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and is nominated for six awards at the upcoming Academy Awards, broadcasting on February 9th.
Thomasin also stars in the upcoming film ‘True History of the Kelly Gang’. The fictional reimagining of one of the world’s greatest outlaws, Ned Kelly and the colonial badlands from which he rose. Russel Crow, George Mackay and Nicholas Hoult also star in this Gothic Western, watch the trailer for it here.
We can’t wait to see what else Thomasin will bring us in 2020!
