Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Auteur Filmmaking, SHIRLEY is a fresh take on the period drama, full of contemporary intrigue and dynamic in style. 

Newly-wed students, Fred and Rose (Australia's Odessa Young), move to a small Vermont college town with the hope of starting a new life. They receive an offer of free room and board from a professor (Michael Stuhlbarg), if Rose agrees to spend time cleaning and looking after his wife – renowned horror author Shirley Jackson (Elizabeth Moss).
 
Shirley detests their presence, which heightens tensions in the tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. Fred and Rose's love is tested when they find themselves fodder in the eccentric couple’s psycho-drama, which inspires Jackson's next major masterpiece.

97% on Rotten Tomatoes

"Decker's filmmaking is often dreamlike, but her storytelling has a cruel bite of reality to it-just as Jackson's writing did decades before." - The Atlantic

"The deeper the author plunges into the project, the more subjective the movie becomes, revealing the dark visions that descend on Shirley in ghastly, expressive bursts." - AV Club

"There are few more daring actors around right now than Moss, and "Shirley" maybe her best performance yet. She's brutally cutting but the pain of every slight ripple across her face." - Associated Press
