Cast, Plot, and Everything We Know So Far

It’s a rare book-to-screen adaptation that has you sitting up and paying attention before the book is even released, not to mention the cameras started rolling. Corn The end of getting lost is one of those too hectic to wait projects that you kind of have to start talking about as soon as possible. With normal peopleby Paul Mescal and Fosse/VerdonAlready on board is Emmy-nominated Margaret Qualley (and Qualley’s producer), it has a lively cast and a script that delivers an intriguing mix of romance, psychological thriller and travelogue. Think before sunrise if Patricia Highsmith had had a story credit.

When will The End of Getting Lost be released?

The film is still in an early stage of pre-production and a release date is yet to be confirmed, but it’s being made by Amazon and will land on the streaming platform in due course.

Qualley plays Duncan’s partner, Gina, a dancer who met her husband at Yale. The cast is thrilling for a number of reasons, not least the intriguing chemistry that could arise when Mescal’s scintillating charm and mischievous intelligence, and Qualley’s sensitive yet bullshit-free screen presence come together.

Who else is involved in The End of Getting Lost?

The movie will be a The lost girl sort of meeting. Producer Dakota Johnson co-starred in Netflix’s Oscar-nominated motherhood drama opposite Mescal and the two bond again here, with Johnson producing.

It’s a team of acting dynasties: Qualley is the daughter of Andie MacDowell, and Johnson, of course, is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.

Is The End of Getting Lost based on a book?

It’s – it’s based on a brand new novel by Yale graduate Robin Kirman. The book, published February 15 via Simon & Schuster, is described by its publisher as a “novel about well-meaning people who behave terribly; about what we will do for love – and what we will do to protect it.” You can read an excerpt here.

What is The End of Getting Lost about?

Set in the pre-cell phone 1990s, the story follows young Yale graduate Gina (Qualley), a professional New York dancer, and her songwriter husband, Duncan (Mescal), as they navigate the Europe on honeymoon. Everything seems sweet between them, but is it? Gina is recovering from a head injury she suffered in Berlin, but the cause remains murky and she relies on her husband to fill in the blanks. The potential for deception and gaslighting is, of course, very real in a relationship whose true power dynamics will come to light over the course of the film.

The novel shifts perspective between the two characters as it moves forward and backward in time. Expect the film to follow suit to play with the narrative viewpoints of its two main characters as the secrets and lies come out.

On paper, it looks like before sunrise through Patricia Highsmith (or, if things get really gnarly, Alfred Hitchcock) – occupying that intriguing space between relationship drama, psychological thriller and over-the-top pot. It should provide plenty of envy-inducing European locations – the book is set in Berlin, Vienna and Zurich – and 90s era joys too. Will Mescal trade that big chunk normal people chain for a fanny pack and a Global Hypercolor t-shirt? We hope so a little.

Who directs The End of Getting Lost?

Deniz Gamze Ergüven will be in charge of it. The Franco-Turkish filmmaker caught the eye with her debut in 2016, Mustang, a live feminist tale that Free time described as “raw, funny and incredibly moving” and “a cross between a prison escape film, an arthouse drama and a fairy tale”. Sounds like a great choice for the material.
