Fictiefilm / 2019 / duration: 1:45 / Verenigd Koninkrijk, Oostenrijk, Germanland / director: Jessica Hausner / Cast: Emily Beecham, Ben Whishaw, Kerry Fox, e.a. / Spoken languages: English / Subtitles: Dutch, French

Alice, a single mother, is a dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a very special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy. Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it 'Little Joe' but as it grows, so too does Alice's suspicion that her new creations may not be as harmless as their nickname suggests.

Press:

"Watch out for Hausner. She’s a cinematic hypnotist of a high order." ★★★1/2 - Rolling Stone

"Little Joe is further proof that you don't need an astronomical budget or A-list stars to make a hauntingly good science fiction film." ★★★★ - First Post
