Hala Matar


Maria Bakalova, Abigail Cowen, Jack Farthing, Daryl Wein


Two journalists travel to the lush Italian villa of a famous musician and his partner for an interview, but all is not as it seems and the trip spirals into deceit and deadly betrayals.

ELECTRA is the feature debut of Bahraini director Hala Matar, known for her music videos and audacious commercial work with Moncler, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Kenzo and Vivenne Westwood. The film is a millennial/Gen-Z riff on La Piscine and a dash of Saltburn with a cast led by Academy Award nominee Maria Bakalova (Bodies Bodies Bodies, Borat 2), Abigail Cowen (star of Netflix’s hit series Fate: the Winx Saga, Redeeming Love) and Jack Farthing (Spencer, 2024 Independent Spirit Award nominee for HBO Max’s Rain Dogs) along with Daryl Wein, who also produced and co-wrote the screenplay. Wein directed the Sundance 2021 pic How It Ends, which was acquired by MGM, and most recently directed the romantic hit Something From Tiffany's for Amazon and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine.

"Visually delightful, sexy and youthful. A lively--and very-well acted--pop thriller." - Film Threat

"Saltburn meets Infinity Pool vibes..." - The Hollywood Reporter
