With feminist thriller Fresh now streaming on Disney+, Christobel Hastings spoke to its star Daisy Edgar-Jones about the horrors of modern dating
In the era of modern dating, nearly everyone you meet has a horror story to tell. A self-obsessed person, perhaps, who didn’t ask a single question.
A date who tried to buy you dinner with a magazine coupon. A date who got drunk and started sobbing about their ex.
Disney’s twisted new thriller
is a cautionary tale that might just persuade you to swear off dating for good.
Case in point: Chad, a crashingly dull man who Noa has the misfortune of having dinner with in the opening scene.
Noa’s luck appears to take a turn, though, when she meets Steve (Sebastian Stan), a handsome, slightly goofy doctor in the fresh produce aisle of a Portland supermarket.
He offers her cotton candy-flavoured grapes, flashes a charming smile.
