Film synopsis

Inspired by a gripping true story, My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done marks the first ever collaboration between cinema greats David Lynch (Twin Peaks) and Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo). An intense observation of the mind and madness behind a brutal crime, it tells the story of Brad McCullum (Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon, Revolutionary Road), an engaging and committed stage actor who becomes obsessed with the Greek tragedy he is rehearsing. With a promising career ahead of him and engaged to bright young Ingrid (Oscar® nominee Chloë Sevigny, Boys Don’t Cry), Brad slips into a spiral of mystifying intrigue that will ultimately become his undoing. A psychological thriller of the deepest and darkest kind, My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done also features Oscar® nominee Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire) with Brad Dourif (Deadwood), Grace Zabriskie (Big Love) and Udo Kier (Halloween).
