New York Times Critics' Pick
96 mins.
Directed by Zachary Wigon

Last day Thursday, 6/22.

A wickedly dark comedy follows dominatrix, Rebecca (Emmy Award® nominee Margaret Qualley), and her wealthy client, Hal (Christopher Abbott), as they engage in a high stakes role playing game for power and control.

In the wake of inheriting his father's hotel chain, Hal attempts to end his long and secret relationship with Rebecca. A battle of wills ensues over the course of one incredibly fraught night, with both Rebecca and Hal struggling to keep the upper hand as the power dynamics swing wildly back and forth.

“If you’re someone who regularly bemoans the dearth of movies for adults, then take heart: SANCTUARY is here for you... Zachary Wigon’s supremely confident second feature is a jet-black romantic comedy hidden inside a twisty psychosexual thriller. Or maybe it’s the other way around.” Jeannette Catsoulis.
