First Trailer and Poster for Dark Comedy STANLEYVILLE

First look at writer/director Maxwell McCabe-Lokos's quirky comedy.

Acclaimed on the festival circuit, writer/director Maxwell McCabe-Lokos's Stanleyville stars Goodnight Mommy's Susanne Wuest as a woman who walks away from her life and enters a bizarre and dangerous contest.

Cara Ricketts, Christian Serritiello, George Tchortov, Adam Brown and Julian Richings also star.

Stanleyville begins a run in US cinemas on April 22nd. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

One fine day, prim and proper Maria (Wuest) decides to unceremoniously walk away from her boring job, her inept husband, and her obnoxious daughter. Moments after doing so, she’s invited to participate in a bizarre and—as it turns out—potentially very dangerous sweepstakes contest, the rules of which are seemingly unknown to even its organizers, competing with a collection of idiosyncratic characters for the chance to win true enlightenment... and one slightly used habanero-orange compact sport utility vehicle. Dark as night and deadpan hilarious, with every fresh escalation progressing according to a warped logic that makes perfect (non)sense.
