Known for her roles in hit franchise films such as Pitch Perfect and Trolls, Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick stars as a woman pushed to the breaking point by her psychologically abusive boyfriend in the new film Alice, Darling, which will be offered exclusively to Ayala Malls Cinemas patrons starting 25 January.

Ayala Malls Cinemas’ A-List Series gives moviegoers a curated selection of films that are exhibited exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas.

Alice, Darling has been hailed by critics as a taut thriller about coercion and control, and also about the power of
deeply-rooted female friendships that lead to resiliency and empowerment.

When the audience first encounters Alice (Kendrick), she is fully in denial about her fraught relationship with her boyfriend Simon (Charlie Carrick) and how damaging it is.

“It was actually a really bizarre character to play because the whole point is that she’s sort of lost herself, and that everything in her focus, all her energy, is going toward being kind of small and flexible and to manage her partner’s potential reactivity,” Kendrick said.

“Before she knows it, she doesn’t recognize herself. Only when she is with her close friends Tess (Kaniehtiio Horn) and Sophie (Wunmi Mosaku) does Alice have a little more room to breathe. It’s interesting because she’s resistant to that at first — if she fully recognizes and accepts herself and then returns to her partner, she will be in serious trouble
— and her carefully constructed, self-sabotaging world will come apart,” added Kendrick.

Watch Alice, Darling starting 25 January exclusively at cinemas of Ayala Malls.
