Looking to recuperate, Catherine heads out to her best friend Virginia’s (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some much needed relaxation. Tranquility eludes her, however, as she s instantly overcome with memories of time spent at the same house with James the year before. Moreover, she finds no solace from Virginia, who is spending increasing amounts of time with a local love interest, Rich (Patrick Fugit). Before long fissures in the relationship between the two women begin to form, sending Catherine into a downward spiral of delusion and madness. A bracing, eerie look at the sometimes dangerously deep bonds of friendship, QUEEN OF EARTH is a thrilling examination of a troublingly complex relationship.
