Sometimes a film gets a bit of buzz simply because of its outrageous premise. But that doesn’t mean the film doesn’t work. The new Hulu original, FRESH (2022), is most certainly one of those bizarre films that seems to be one thing but turns into something completely different than one would think.
Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) is a twenty-something that just can’t seem to find love. She starts using dating apps and has many blind dates but most turn out to be completely awful. Then one day while she’s grocery shopping, she meets Steve (Sebastian Stan) who seems to be everything she’s ever wanted in a guy. After hitting it off quite well, the two head to his vacation home. While enjoying their time together, something drastic happens that will change her life.
The film is directed by Mimi Cave form a script by Lauryn Kahn. Besides starring Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sebastian Stan, the film’s cast includes Jonica T. Gibbs and Charlotte Le Bon. Dark Discussions takes a look at this generally positively reviewed film and gives their thoughts.
