Alicia Vikander gets embroiled in a love triangle with dangerous consequences in the new psychological thriller film Earthquake Bird.
Vikander plays Lucy, a young expat with a sketchy past in 1989’s Tokyo, who gets invovled in an intense relationship with Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), a similarly troubled local photographer.
Riley Keough plays Lily, a carefree women who befriends Lucy and begins seeing Teiji herself.
Soon after, Lily is found dead under suspicious circumstances and Lucy becomes the prime suspect.
The trailer for Netflix’s Earthquake Bird is full of intrigue and drama and features some top-notch performances from its stars.
The psychological thriller aspect is made quite evident in the trailer as there is an unsettling vibe all throughout it.
A good thriller film will keep the audience guessing and at the edge of their seats, and it looks like this film could deliver on that front.
It’s directed by Wash Westmoreland, whose past directing credits include Still Alice (2014) and Colette (2018).
Vikander was recently seen headlining the new Tomb Raider (2018) reboot film so this smaller film is a step back from the mainstream, though she’ll be back for Tomb Raider 2 in 2021.
The two seem to play off each other well as two opposites in this film, though neither of them are innocent, it seems.
The film is based on the award-winning novel of the same name from author Susanna Jones and arrives on Netflix from 15 November 2019.
