Hatching is heading to Sundance next week but you can take a peek at the official trailer below. The story follows twelve-year-old Tinja as she desperately works to please her image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog "Lovely Everyday Life" presents their family’s idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection. When Tinja finds a wounded bird in the woods, she brings its strange egg home, nurturing it until it hatches. The creature that emerges becomes both her closest friend and a living nightmare.
Hatching is described as "a fascinating portrait of the nature of maternal instinct, as Tinja battles to come to terms with the genuine emotional bond with her grotesque and bloodthirsty newfound family while contending with the fraying connection to her own demanding mother." Take a look at the official trailer now:
Hatching will premiere virtually at Sundance on January 22, 2022 at 11:55 pm MT in the Midnight section, and will open in theaters and on digital/VOD April 29, 2022 from IFC Midnight.
