The Trailer for Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things

-

Netflix has released the trailer for Academy Award winner Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things, coming to the streaming service on September 4. The film was written and directed by Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Anomalisa, and Synecdoche, New York).

I’m Thinking of Ending Things, which has been rated R for language including some sexual references, is based on Iain Reid’s internationally best-selling novel of the same name (buy at Amazon).

In the film, despite second thoughts about their relationship, a young woman (Jessie Buckley) takes a road trip with her new boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to his family farm.

Trapped at the farm during a snowstorm with Jake’s mother (Toni Collette) and father (David Thewlis), the young woman begins to question the nature of everything she knew or understood about her boyfriend, herself, and the world.

Named an NPR Best Book of the Year in 2016, I’m Thinking of Ending Things is a stunning debut that examines the fragility of the psyche and the limitations of solitude.

The book is officially described as follows: “In Iain’s first deeply suspenseful and unnerving novel I’m Thinking of Ending Things, a man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. When the two take an unexpected detour, she is left stranded, wondering if there is any escape at all. What follows is a twisted unraveling that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.”

Quote from Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film group: “Charlie is a singular talent with a formidable artistic vision. He has the rare ability to tell unique stories in a universal way,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film group.

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things is a chilling thriller and we can’t wait to share Charlie’s adaptation with audiences everywhere.”

The film is a Likely Story production. Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman (Private Life, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Foxcatcher) and Stefanie Azpiazu (The Land of Steady Habits, Enough Said) are producing along with Kaufman. Reid served as co-producer.

This new project reunites Kaufman with his frequent collaborator Bregman, who previously produced Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Synecdoche, New York, and Human Nature.
