Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss, THE HANDMAID'S TALE, US) is a '90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted bandmates, nervous record company executives and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success. Anchored by a towering, unflinching performance from Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Moss, and supported by a stellar ensemble cast, HER SMELL examines the grit, grace and gravitas of an unforgettable fictional rock star crashing down to earth into the harsh realities of mid-life. With his incendiary and deeply humane sixth feature, writer-director Alex Ross Perry (GOLDEN EXITS, LISTEN UP PHILIP) pumps up the volume and shines a light on the terrifying moment when superstardom wanes — and quiet becomes the new loud. With Cara Delevingne, Dan Stevens, Agyness Deyn, Gayle Rankin, Ashley Benson and Amber Heard.
