The Lure (2015)

Poland | 92 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Agnieszka Smoczyńska

In this bold, genre-defying horror-musical mashup — the playful and confident debut of Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska — a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate '80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. In a visceral twist on Hans Christian Andersen's original Little Mermaid tale, one sister falls for a human, and as the bonds of sisterhood are tested, the lines between love and survival get blurred.

"Holding it all together is an exploration - always intriguing if not always coherent - of the myths and puzzles of female sexuality." - A.O. Scott, New York Times

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
