‘A Field in England’ Trailer Invites You on a Short, Strange Trip

Field in England Poster

Brimming with touches of a psilocybin-laced Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the trailer for Ben Wheatley‘s A Field in England promises a treasure hunt, screaming freakouts and total damnation. In its mysteriously simple synopsis, a band of deserters run from an English Civil War battle and becoming engaged in a search for buried loot. Somewhere along the way, mushrooms (or something psychedelic) gets involved.

Most will want to see it based on Wheatley’s name alone, anyway. The director behind Kill List earned a lot of sharp acclaim for his vision and knack for upsetting, deeply trenchant storytelling. He then followed it with Sightseers and proved his chops with black comedy even further.

And now, this:

A Field in England will be available in many forms in the UKon July 5th, and Drafthouse Films has picked it up for its US release.
