“This is the moment of truth,” announces the teaser trailer for the sci-fi anthology Kinds of Kindness of Yorgos Lanthimosreleased this morning by Searchlight Pictures.

The project marks the third collaboration between Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lanthimos and actress Emma Stonewho this month won her second Oscar for best actress, for her previous collaboration with Lanthimos, Poor Things. Their first film together was The Favourite.

The main cast is made up of Stone (Poor Things, La La Land), Jesse Plemons (Civil War, The Power of the Dog), Willem Dafoe (Poor Things, The Northman), Margaret Qualley (The Maid, Poor Things), Hong Chau (The Whale, The Menu), Joe Alwyn (The Favourite, Stars at Noon), Mamoudou Athie (Archive 81, Jurassic World: Dominion), y Hunter Schafer (Euphoria, Cuckoo).

Lanthimos dirige Kinds of Kindness from the script co-written with Efthimis Filippou (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer).


“Kinds of Kindness is a triptych fable, following a choiceless man trying to take control of his own life; a police officer alarmed because his wife, missing at sea, has returned and looks like a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.”

During the Golden Globes last January, the filmmaker described the project like this:

“There are three contemporary stories, and there is a core of actors, seven in total, who play a character in each story. So, they will play three different characters”

Kinds of Kindness was filmed in New Orleans in late 2022.

Lanthimos, Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe, and Kasia Malipan produce the feature film.

His previous film, Poor Things – even in some theaters in our country – was nominated for 11 Oscars, taking home four of them, including best leading actress for Stone, best makeup and hair, costume design and production design. The film has accumulated $112.8 million dollars in the global box office.

Searchlight Pictures has set the theatrical release of Kinds of Kindness for June 21, 2024.
