She chances upon a university sleep study that offers the promise of safety and money and brings her an unexpected friend and confidant in the overseeing scientist Jeremy (Liboiron). But there’s something curious about proceedings and being under observation seems to make Sarah’s disturbing dreams even worse. As the darkness begins to close in, it’s soon clear that Sarah has unknowingly become the conduit to a horrifying, new discovery…
A distinctive and compelling work of science fiction that haunts the space between wakefulness and sleep, COME TRUE is the sophomore feature by Canadian writer, director, cinematographer, and composer Anthony Scott Burns. Featuring an unforgettable electronic score by Electric Youth and Pilotpriest (the filmmaker’s composing moniker) and a striking performance from breakthrough actress Julia Sarah Stone (ALLURE, EVERY THING WILL BE FINE, AMC’s The Killing), COME TRUE is a cinematic dream well worth the submersion.
COME TRUE will open in select theaters, digital platforms, and cable VOD on March 12, 2021 courtesy of IFC Midnight, and available in Canada on the same date courtesy of Raven Banner.
“Radical. COME TRUE wants to be the kind of sci-fi movie
that warrants multiple viewings. It deserves them.”
