We heard it through the grapevine… and you will hear it here first:

A film that starts out like just your normal marital drama… “Things Heard and Seen” shows a relationship unfolding, dominated by lies, which comes to a more than surprising end.

The art restorer Catherine (Amanda Seyfried) moves to the country side with her husband George (James Norton) and their daughter Franny because he has received a professorship there. What at first looks like a picture book story opens a curtain for the viewer after a short time, through which one can look behind the facade. More and more lies from George come to the surface and ultimately the biggest one turns the former drama into a kind of horror film. The house that George bought so cheaply has a story: In this house the previous owner killed his wife and then himself. And this is exactly what Catherine seems to be able to feel in the house. 

Amanda Seyfried delivers a strong performance in this thriller, as well as in one of her first thrillers “Red Riding Hood” from 2011. “Things Heard and Seen” is based on Elizabeth Brundage’s bestseller “All Things Cease to Appear”.

“Things Heard & Seen” is available on Netflix, released on April 29, 2021
