Even before Kinds of Kindness hits theaters, the film is generating buzz for several cast member’s close connections to Taylor Swift.

The star-studded cast includes one of Swift’s best friends Emma Stone, her ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn and collaborator Jack Antonoff’s wife, Margaret Qualley. Kinds of Kindness also features stars who aren’t in Swift’s universe — including Jesse Plemons and Willem Dafoe.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the film follows “three stories [that] revolve around a man who tries to take control of his own life, a policeman whose wife seems like a different person, and a woman who searches for someone with a special ability.”

Prior to Kinds of Kindness, Lanthimos and Stone collaborated on Poor Things — which earned her an Oscar for Best Actress in March — and 2018’s The Favourite, which also featured Alwyn.

Is There a Trailer for ‘Kinds of Kindness’?

The first teaser for the film dropped in March. At the beginning of the clip, Stone is seen driving a fast-paced car as she says in a voiceover, “This is it. The moment of truth.”

The video, which featured snippets of each cast member, came to a close as Stone’s car pulled into a parking space and she’s heard saying, “Isn’t it wonderful?”

The full trailer was released in May. While it did not reveal much of the movie’s plot, it did feature several dramatic scenes. In one clip, a body is seen getting dragged into another room, while another shows Alwyn screaming.

“Open your eyes and look clearly at what’s going on around you,” Plemons said in the video, which is set to “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by Eurythmics.

What is ‘Kinds of Kindness’ About?

While much of the details remain under wraps, Kinds of Kindness centers around three separate storylines. Lanthimos previously described the film as a trio of different stories “with four or five actors who play one part in each story, so they all play three different parts.”

“It was almost like making three films, really,” he said during an interview with The Guardian in December 2023.
