Anne Hathaway’s new film adapted from Ottessa Moshfegh’s debut novel Eileen
Anne Hathaway will star alongside Thomasin McKenzie in a film based on the 2015 novel, Eileen, by Ottessa Moshfegh.
The book, which has been compared to Gone Girl, is set in the early sixties and follows a woman name Eileen Dunlop, who works as a secretary at the boys prison.
While balancing her draining job and taking care of her alcoholic father, she ‘tempers her dreary days with perverse fantasies and dreams of escaping to the big city.’
Additionally, Eileen ‘fills her nights and weekends with shoplifting’ and ‘stalking a buff prison guard named Randy,’ according to Good Reads.
Things turn south, however, after a ‘bright, beautiful, and cheery’ new woman starts working as a counselor in the same prison.
Ultimately, Eileen’s affection for her ‘pulls her into complicity in a crime that surpasses her wildest imaginings.’
