SYNOPSIS

In every stable relationship, all roads lead to a home, or at least that is what Gemma and Tom are led to believe. As they begin their search for the perfect nest, they find themselves trapped in ‘Yonder’, an estate that promises everything a family truly needs – even a baby.

collapse

A dollhouse nightmare for anyone afraid of commitment, Vivarium plays on the suffocating repetition of the circle of life. Director Lorcan Finnegan does not simply go through the stages of life: he accelerates growth at such a terrifying pace that even the most devoted of partners are ridden by anxiety. Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg further add to the film’s trembling uncertainty of parenting.
