Apple has debuted the trailer for “Leslie, My Name Is Evil.” Thriller is set to premeire at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Synopsis: Perry, a sheltered chemist, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight-A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his Christian girlfriend, Dorothy.
Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by Kennedy’s assassination, an abortion and the divorce of her parents. She took LSD, joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes in court, Perry is forced to confront the darkest parts of him and by extension, society. Leslie, My Name Is Evil is a film that explores how the choices Perry and Leslie make reflect upon the moral choices our society has made.
“Leslie, My Name Is Evil” was directed by Reginald Harkema, and stars Gregory Smith, Kristen Hager, Ryan Robbins, Sarah Gadon, Don McKellar, Peter MacNeill, Peter Keleghan, Kristin Adams, Tom Barnett, and Kaniehtiio Horn.
