Rent Shirley through NEON and Support NYWIFT

New York Women in Film & Television has partnered with Academy Award-winning studio NEON to present Shirley, a new film in which a famous horror writer finds inspiration for her next book after she and her husband take in a young couple.

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.
