In the 1950s, a two young newlyweds come to Vermont to stay with reclusive horror writer Shirley Jackson. But as Jackson begins work on a new novel, the couple find themselves entangled in a strange, twisted relationship with the writer and her husband. Featuring a knockout performance by Elisabeth Moss, Shirley is more psychodrama than conventional biopic, imbued with the same gothic intensity as Jackson’s fiction.
