The new thriller from Amazon Studios, FOE, stars Academy Award nominees Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) and Paul Mescal (Carmen). The film is based on the Iain Reid novel of the same name. The story follows a married couple living on a remote farm whose lives are thrown into turmoil when a stranger arrives.



Foe is a haunting exploration of marriage and identity set in an uncertain world. Hen and Junior farm a secluded piece of land that has been in Junior’s family for generations, but their quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger (Aaron Pierre) shows up at their door with a startling proposal. Based on best-selling author Iain Reid’s novel, directed by Garth Davis, and co-written by Davis and Reid, Foe’s mesmerizing imagery and persistent questions about the nature of humanity (and artificial humanity) bring the not-too-distant future to luminous life.
