Now, go ahead and scroll down to find more updates on the new movie.
Things Heard And Seen -Release Date And Cast
The newest Netflix movie is releasing on April 30, 2021. This means it will be available to stream outside the USA to everyone who has access to Netflix. So, make sure to mark down the release date on your calendars.
Things Heard and Seen follows the life of a Manhattan Couple (Seyfried and Norton). The couple moves to a historic hamlet (Hudson valley) and soon realizes that their marriage has a dark mystery, which rivals the history of their new shelter.
Of course, the story sounds interesting. And we can get why most people think of it as a horror movie. But it is not. Instead, it is very different from a horror film and will have its own essence.
The star-studded film also possesses a brilliant cast. It includes Amanda Seyfried and James Norton in the lead role. Seyfried is known for her roles in notable movies like Dear John, Mean Girls, Les Miserables. Her recent work in David Fincher’s Mank is outstanding. And the actress surely deserves an Oscar for her role. Mank is another Netflix original masterpiece. Whereas Norton is known for McMafia, War & Peace, and Happy Valley.
The film also stars Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Jack Gore (The Kids are Alright), and F. Murray Abraham (Mighty Aphrodite). But, sadly, their roles are not revealed yet.
Directors Take On Things Heard and Seen
The directors of the film recently had a session with Entertainment Weekly. There the duo of filmmakers opened up about the film and why they wanted to make it in the first place.
Robert Pulicini started and said that the landscape in the Hudson Valley introduced him to the novel (All Things Cease to Appear). He said he read the book after he heard great reviews about it from different people. Pulicini then talked about nature and the feelings of the landscape. He said that the place is filled with drama- has spirituality in the backdrop. Besides, there is also a spooky element to it, and the people can feel it when they are up there with the clinging fog. He thought it was beautiful, yet odd at the same time.
When asked if it was a horror story or not, they immediately declined. Pulicini said that the real horror of the story is the marriage.
Whereas Berman said that just like Nicolas Roeg’s movie Don’t Look Now, it has different emotions with elements of scares. Definitely, supernatural things are happening in the film, but it is not a horror film, she said. In the end, Berman said that to honor the novel, they added ghosts and murders, but in addition to all of this, ‘Things Heard and Seen’ also has real emotional drama.
