What they’re saying:

  • Searchlight Pictures: “KINDS OF KINDNESS is a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.”
  • Yorgos Lanthimos: “We had started out with one story, but as we were working on it, we thought that it might be interesting to make a film that has a different structure to what we had done before. As we identified the subsequent stories, we wanted to keep a thematic thread, so it felt as if it all belonged under the same umbrella.”
  • Emma Stone: “I loved the script and how it developed into a triptych. The stories weave together in a way that is not necessarily clear but capitalizes on what has come before. I thought the prospect was really exciting.”

Kinds of Kindness will be released into select theaters on Friday, June 21st.
