Sci-Fi Film ‘Little Joe’ Coming Soon

Magnolia Pictures is proud to release the official trailer for the upcoming sci-fi drama, Little Joe, written and directed by Jessica Hausner (Lovely Rita 2001).

Little Joe opens in theaters on December 6, 2019.


Alice (Emily Beecham) is a single mother and dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy. Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe.’ But as their plant grows, so, too, does Alice’s suspicion that her new creation may not be as harmless as its nickname suggests.
