Following its critically acclaimed debut at the 2020 Toronto Film Festival, the highly anticpated dark comic thriller I Care a Lot will stream next month on Amazon Prime Video.
Starring Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Eiza González (Baby Driver) and Dianne Wiest (Parenthood, Edward Scissorhands)
I Care a Lot has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has garnered critical acclaim since premiering at the 2020 Toronto Film Festival with Variety describing the film as a ‘sleekly unnerving thriller.’ “I Care a Lot is an excellent addition to Amazon Prime Video’s extensive catalog of quality films, like Palm Springs and Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, brought directly and exclusively to Prime members,” said Brad Beale, Vice President, Worldwide Content Acquisition, Prime Video. “World-class performances by the very talented Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage and Dianne Wiest are guaranteed to take Amazon Prime Video audiences on a hugely entertaining journey of power games, revenge and deceit.”
Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Academy Award® nominee Rosamund Pike) is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover Fran (Eiza González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (two-time Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair, nor square.
The extraordinary dark comic thriller will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in Australia, UK, Canada, Ireland, Italy and New Zealand from 19 February.
