Kirsten Dunst has lamented her spot as an indie it girl over the last decade. Although once seen as America’s sweetheart in such films as Spider-Man, Bring It On, and Drop Dead Gorgeous, she’s not been afraid to take on the more mature and somewhat experimental roles. As she’s transitioned into a more evocative actress, she’s worked with such filmmaking icons like Lars von Trier and Sofia Coppola.
In her latest film, she works with first time writers/directors Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the founding sisters behind Rodarte. In Woodshock, Dunst plays Theresa, a young woman coping with a profound loss. As she becomes victim to her own mourning and the mind-altering effects of a powerful cannabinoid substance, she falls deeper into a state of paranoia.
Woodshock premieres September 15. Watch the trailer below:
