Life on the farm takes on a bitter new meaning in Things Heard and Seen. Directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s latest film transports audiences to a town in the idyllic Hudson Valley in upstate New York, where the young Clare family relocates from the big city to start a new life on a sheltered but beautiful old farm. But their house has a lot of secrets, and so does the family patriarch, George.
Leading the cast of this gripping thriller is Mank star Amanda Seyfried, whose haunting portrayal of the talented but troubled Catherine anchors the unnerving story. However, her character is just one of the several women who are impacted by George’s lies. Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer is another as Willis, George’s reluctant young lover.
Though Catherine and Willis only cross paths indirectly, they have a lot more in common than they might realize. Throughout the film, both Seyfried and Dyer shine as individual performers, but there are a couple of scenes in particular that showcase the subtle connections between their characters and, thus, the cyclical nature of George’s duplicity.
