Eileen Cast and Character Guide (2023 film)

Eileen Cast: Eileen, the 2023 psychological thriller film directed by William Oldroyd, unfolds a chilling narrative derived from Ottessa Moshfegh’s 2015 novel of the same name, masterfully adapted by Moshfegh herself in collaboration with Luke Goebel. Boasting a stellar cast featuring Thomasin McKenzie, Shea Whigham, Marin Ireland, Owen Teague, and Anne Hathaway, the film is set against the evocative backdrop of 1960s Massachusetts, delving into the sinister dynamics of a parasitic relationship between two women ensnared in the grim realities of a juvenile detention facility.

Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival on January 21, 2023, Eileen captivated audiences with its unnerving tale and subsequently hit select theaters in the United States on December 1, 2023, courtesy of Neon. The wide release on December 8, 2023, marked a broader audience’s immersion into the unsettling world crafted by Oldroyd. Critics lauded the film for its riveting cast performances, the meticulous recreation of the period atmosphere, and its unwavering faithfulness to Moshfegh’s compelling source material. Eileen emerges as a gripping cinematic experience, leaving an indelible mark on the psychological thriller genre.
