A brilliant man marries a beautiful woman and shows her his home, stating that it's all hers - except a room she can't enter. First chance she enters and discovers what might be human cloning. When the husband returns she pays the price.
Newlywed Elizabeth (Abbey Lee) arrives with her brilliant scientist husband Henry (Ciarán Hinds) to his magnificent estate, where he wows her with lavish dinners and a dazzling tour of the property. The house staff Claire (Carla Gugino) and Oliver (Matthew Beard) treat her differently but she can't shake the feeling something is off. Henry explains that everything in his world now belongs to her, all is for her to play in - all except for a locked-off room he forbids her from entering. When he goes away for business, Elizabeth decides to investigate.
Abbey Lee was previously in The Neon Demon, in which a character kisses their reflection on a mirror as she does in this film. See more »
I dreamt I would meet a brilliant man. I would steal his breath away. And he in turn would steal me away from everything ugly into a secret world of our own.

Tries too hard
Elizabeth Harvest has an interesting concept and is intriguing enough to make you want to follow it until the end. The problem is that It doesn't really know how to end or how to go along after a certain point. It premise is its best quality. It ultimately fails when it tries to do too much and it's attempts at double and triple twists fall flat. Stylistically it's pleasant to look at and the acting of Ciaran Hinds is excellent. At the end of the day more complicated doesn't always mean better.
