A young couple moves in with the famed author, Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss), and her Bennington College professor husband, Stanley Hyman, in the hope of starting a new life but instead find themselves fodder for a psycho-drama that inspires Shirley's next novel. 

Starring Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Logan Lerman and Odessa Young.

★★★★ - Stuff
"Elisabeth Moss shines" ...“a brilliant alchemy of critical thought and creativity” ..."a taut script and three terrific performances"

★★★★ - Rolling Stone
"With Elisabeth Moss brilliantly playing horror author Shirley Jackson like a volcano on the verge of eruption, this teasing, spellbinding psychodrama from Josephine Decker preps us to expect the unexpected. Fasten your seatbelts."

★★★★ - Guardian
"Elisabeth Moss anchors darkly compelling literary psychodrama"
"...for those willing to sink into the depths with Shirley, it’s a delicious journey down"

★★★★ (4/4) - Tribune News Service
"Nothing less than a masterpiece, a powerhouse of performance, style and subtext. It is witchy and wordy and bracingly feminist; it is disorienting and strangely erotic and unpredictable."

Flickering Myth
"Artful and thrilling, Shirley is a classic throwback to iconic psychodramas of the past. Elisabeth Moss is spell-binding here."
