Fresh (2022)

Director: Mimi Cavern

Writer: Lauryn Kahn

Cast: Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sebastian Stan, Jojo T. Gibbs, Dayo Okeniyi, Andrea Bang, Charlotte Le Bon

Run Time: 1 hr 57 minutes

Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) fulfills Steve (Sebastian Stan) simply as she’s sworn off dating. He’s kind, lovely, and simply what she’s been searching for in a partner. That is, till she finds his secret side hustle – selling women’s body parts to other cannibals. Noa then needs to find out how to prevent being consumed herself, even if that implies playing in addition to Steve’s ongoing love for her. Fresh is a unique take on the hazards and scaries of contemporary dating that artfully balances empowerment and anxiety. Daisy Edgar-Jones plays the subtleties of Noa so well that in some cases it’s tough to inform if she still has sensations for Steve or if she’s simply pretending. And Sebastian Stan is in some way able to still make Steve preferable even after exposing his unhinged pastimes. If you’re squeamish, I certainly don’t suggest consuming while you watch this movie. Fresh is more disturbing than straight-out gory, in regard to the cannibalism, however it can still make the greatest stomach turn a bit. – Brynna Arens
