Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway star in the upcoming thriller, Serenity. The film comes from Steven Knight, the same writer who has written projects such as Peaky Blinders, Taboo, and the upcoming The Girl in the Spider's Web. Knight's directing credits include a few episodes of The Detectives tv series, Redemption and Locke.
From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
Along with McConaughey and Hathaway, the film stars Diane Lane, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong and Kenneth Fok.
Serenity hits theaters October 19. You can watch the first official trailer below.
