Rosamund Pike is back playing yet another dangerous game in the trailer for J Blakeson’s “I Care a Lot,” a crime drama that premiered at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival.
Pike plays Marla Grayson, a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly people — whose assets she cunningly seizes through legal means. However, she and her business partner and lover Fran (Eiza Gonzalez) accidentally choose the wrong retiree to con.
Peter Dinklage, Chris Messina and Dianne Wiest also star.
“I Care a Lot” is produced by Teddy Schwarzman, Ben Stillman, Michael Heimler and Blakeson. Executive producers are Andrea Ajemian and Sacha Guttenstein.
The film, which debuted to rave reviews and holds a score of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, will debut on Netflix on Feb. 19.
Watch the trailer above.

TIFF 2020: ”Pieces of a Woman,“ ”The Water Man,“ ”I Care A Lot“ and more are getting attention from buyers
What the Cannes virtual marketplace proved earlier this year is that even without the in-person meetings, the red carpet galas and all the press hype, there's still room for a lucrative sales market surrounding these virtual events. While that's true of this year's Toronto International Film Festival, the hybrid physical and virtual fest is operating on a slimmed-down lineup of movies. And with Oscar eligibility requirements pushed back to 2021, there isn't the same need for all of these movies to make a splash. That said, we are looking forward to quite a bit at this year's TIFF, and so are buyers.
