ICO Two films by Josephine Decker Season: Single Decker Sunday Matinee – Thou wast Mild and Lovely

16 Aug 2015

Thou Wast Mild and Lovely is the wildly imaginative and unexpected second feature from Josephine Decker.

The film is the creepy, erotic tale of married man Akin (Joe Swanberg) who takes a summer job working on a remote ranch. Akin craves isolation and here he has only the deranged farmer and his strange, earthy daughter for company. While he can’t make sense of their world – full of inappropriate urges and simmering menace and lust – it’s also clear that he’s not so straightforward; he harbours secrets back at home.

This ‘magical-realism-romcom-mumblecore-western-with-horror mixture’ will leave dirt under your fingernails.
