A lonely survivor faces threats of all kinds—including a potential alliance that might not be what it seems—in the new trailer and poster for The Survivalist, coming out this May from IFC Midnight.
"A time of starvation. The Survivalist lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest protecting his crop from intruders with his shotgun and improvised traps. But the long years alone have taken their toll on him and he is beginning to lose his grip on reality.
Everything changes when a starving woman called KATHRYN and her teenage daughter, MILJA, discover the farm. Desperate for shelter, the mother offers up her daughter to spend the night with him in return for bed and board. Overcome with desire, Survivalist breaks his strict code of self-preservation and accepts them into his cabin. As the exchange becomes an uneasy ongoing arrangement, the women plot to get rid of Survivalist and have the farm for themselves. But just as they are about to put their plan into action, an intruder kidnaps Milja and Survivalist risks his life to save her. As he is nursed back to health by the women, food runs short on the farm and they are forced to make desperate decisions to survive."
Written and directed by Stephen Fingleton, The Survivalist stars Martin McCann, Mia Goth, and Olwen Fouéré. The film was produced by Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, and David Gilbery. IFC Midnight will release The Survivalist in select theaters and on VOD on May 19th.
