Portman will play a Hollywood actress who travels to the picturesque coast of Maine to study the real-life woman (Moore) she’s set to play in a film. Moore will play a woman who was the subject of a tabloid scandal two decades prior after she married a man 23 years her junior. As Moore’s character and her much younger husband prepare to send their twin girls off to college, the family dynamic begins to unravel under the outsider lens of Portman’s character.

Haynes previously worked with Moore on SafeFar From Heaven, I’m Not There and Wonderstruck. The director also has the Apple documentary The Velvet Underground debuting at Cannes this year.

Portman, who won an Oscar for Black Swan, just wrapped Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder, while Moore won her Oscar for Still Alice and can currently be seen as the lead in Lisey’s Story on Apple TV+. She also appears in The Woman in the Window and will be seen in the feature adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen later this year.
