A seductive, thrilling and scary author biopic unlike anything you’ve ever seen

SHIRLEY is the story of Shirley Jackson (1916–1965), the American author best known for her 1959 horror novel “The Haunting of Hill House” – but this is no traditional biopic. Mixing period drama, campus comedy and elements of dark fantasy, director Josephine Decker crafts a story which is as full of tantalizing mystery, creeping dread and seductive atmosphere as Jackson’s own stories. Featuring a stellar performance by Elisabeth Moss in the title role, this is a bewitching portrait which frames Jackson within her own literary universe.
