The synopsis for The Neon Demon is as follows:
When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.
The cast of The Neon Demon include Elle Fanning, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Bella Heathcote, Jena Malone, and Desmond Harrington. Refn as always has a tremendous eye visually for matching the scenes with the tone of what he’s going for and this film looks to be a more sinister take in the style of Black Swan in the modelling world in Los Angeles. Granted outside of Bronson and Drive I’ve still to see his previous work which is something I must work on this month.
The Neon Demon is scheduled for UK cinematic release on the 8th July 2016.
