Wildcard annouces Irish release date for VIVARIUM

December 10th, 2019

Lorcan Finnegan’s sci-fi thriller Vivarium starring The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg, Green Room’s Imogen Poots and written by Garret Shanley will be released in Irish cinemas on 27th March 2020.

During their search for the perfect home, Gemma (Poots) and Tom (Eisenberg) find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like suburban neighborhood named Yonder. All attempts to escape end in failure, culminating in the discovery of a baby on the pavement outside house number 9 with the instructions ‘raise the child and be released’. Reminiscent of the likes of Get Out and TV’s Black Mirror, Vivarium is as thrillingly provocative as it is wickedly enjoyable and takes you on a trip into an unforgettable suburban Twilight Zone.
