Life is but a stream for Daniela Ramírez…
Netflix has acquired global streaming rights to Madre, Aaron Burns’ psychological thriller starring the 30-year-old Chilean actress.
Madre, which made its premiere at SXSW, marks Burns’ sophomore turn as feature director.
Madre stars Ramírez as a four-months-pregnant mother of a severely autistic boy (Matías Bassi). After a chance encounter with a gifted Filipino caretaker (Aida Jabolin), the young mother begins to suspect that the new nanny is using the language barrier to turn the boy against her. And then things get sinister.
Burns, who appeared in Roth’s pics The Green Inferno and Keanu Reeves-starrer Knock, Knock, directs Madre from his own original screenplay.
His comedy Blacktino was released in 2011, and before that he worked on visual effects for Grindhouse and Machete, among other credits.
Netflix will begin streaming Madre exclusively by the end of 2017.
Ramirez’s previous credits include La Poseída and Los Archivos del Cardenal.
