(2015) dir Karyn Kusama w/Logan Marshall-Green, Michiel Huisman, Tammy Blanchard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, John Carroll Lynch [100 min; DCP]
In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), the tension is palpable when Will (Marshall-Green) shows up to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife Eden (Blanchard) and new husband David (Huisman). The estranged divorcees’ tragic past haunts an equally eerie present; amid Eden’s suspicious behavior and her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, THE INVITATION blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will – and the audience – are unsure what threats are real or imagined.

“A genuinely unnerving experience, one of the scariest times you’ll have in a theater this decade and a notable comeback for director Karyn Kusama.” – Michael Gingold, Fangoria

(3½ of 4 Stars) “Kusama’s handling of point of view is diabolically shrewd.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

“So sweat-inducingly tense that I could only watch it through laced fingers.” – Village Voice

“Thriller fans won’t regret accepting ‘The Invitation’.” – Abby Garnett, Indiewire

“Ms. Kusama can coax scares from shadows, silences and ricocheting looks.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“A charged, unnerving turn of the screw, The Invitation is consumed by the fear of forgetting—and, in the end, of not being able to.” – Matt Brennan, Slant Magazine

Brattle Passes accepted.

Special, Usher, and Producer members may reserve passes here.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
