Netflix continues to push intriguing film projects with the future release of Horse Girl, a new feature from indie darlings The Duplass Brothers. Written by director Jeff Baena (writer of I Heart Huckabees, director of Life After Beth) and star Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community), Horse Girl looks to push the boundaries of traditional narrative storytelling with a dark tragicomedy regarding isolation and the dream world. In terms of Netflix films, think more Unicorn Store then The Irishman.

The official synopsis for the film:

“Sarah (Alison Brie), a socially isolated arts and crafts store employee, finds herself more content in the company of horses and supernatural crime shows than people. But when a series of strangely surreal dreams upend the simplicity of her waking life, Sarah struggles to distinguish her visions from reality. Directed by Jeff Baena, Horse Girl is a darkly humorous psychological thriller about a woman’s search for the truth, however abstract it may be.”
