    It’s time: the adaptation of Ottessa Moshfegh’s first novel, Eileen—which she once described as her attempt at “a mainstream book a normal person could read”—is coming to theaters on December 1. Directed by William Oldroyd (who also directed the excellent Lady Macbeth), and written by Moshfegh along with her partner Luke Goebel, the film stars Thomasin McKenzie as Eileen and Anne Hathaway as Rebecca; it also stars Shea Whigham, Marin Ireland and Owen Teague. Watch the trailer below—and if you’re so inclined, refresh your memory of the book by reading an excerpt here.
