Irish sci-fi thriller Vivarium to release online across major digital platforms next Friday, March 27th
20 Mar 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Jesse Eisenberg & Imogen Poots in 'Vivarium'.
Lorcan Finnegan’s sci-fi thriller Vivarium starring The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg and Green Room’s Imogen Poots and written by Garret Shanley will be available across a number of digital platforms including: iTunes / Apple TV, Amazon, Sky Store, Microsoft Store, Playstation, Virgin, Google Play, Rakuten, BT, Curzon Home Cinema and BFI Player.

It is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. 

During their search for the perfect home, Gemma (Poots) and Tom (Eisenberg) find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like suburban neighbourhood named Yonder. All attempts to escape end in failure, culminating in the discovery of a baby on the pavement outside house number 9 with the instructions ‘raise the child and be released’. Reminiscent of the likes of Get Out and TV’s Black Mirror, Vivarium is as thrillingly provocative as it is wickedly enjoyable and takes you on a trip into an unforgettable suburban Twilight Zone.

Following its world debut in competition as part of Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival (2019) where it picked up the Gan Foundation Award, the film went on to screen at some of the most prestigious film festivals around the world including the Sitges International Film Festival where Imogen Poots was awarded Best Actress and the BFI London Film Festival where it received rave reviews.  Vivarium was the opening film of the recent Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival.

Vivarium is a European co-production with Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell producing for Dublin’s Fantastic Films along with Jean-Yves Roubin of Belgium’s Frakas Productions and Alexander Brøndsted of Denmark’s Pingpong Film.

Vivarium will be released on the following digital platforms in Ireland and the UK next Friday 27th March: iTunes / Apple TV, Amazon, Sky Store, Microsoft Store, PlayStation, Virgin, Google Play, Rakuten, BT, Curzon Home Cinema and BFI Player.
