Emma Stone is fresh off winning her second Oscar for Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, and their next collaboration is just around the corner! The first trailer for Kinds of Kindness is here, and it gives us a glimpse of the film’s star-studded ensemble cast.

The film’s official synopsis describes it as “a triptych fable” following three characters – a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life, a policeman who is alarmed after his wife who was missing at sea comes back home, and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.

The first trailer for Kinds of Kindness doesn’t reveal too much about the film’s plot, but it gives us an idea about its tone and a glimpse of its star-studded cast. In addition to Stone, this film also stars Poor Things’ Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, plus Hong Chau (The Whale), Joe Alwyn (The Favourite), Mamoudou Athie (Archive 81), and Hunter Schafer (Euphoria).

Lanthimos directed the film and co-wrote the script alongside his frequent collaborator Efthimis Filippou (The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer). Kinds of Kindness will be released on June 21 via Searchlight Pictures.
