Chloë Grace Moretz contracts a mysterious illness in Netflix's Brain on Fire trailer

Posted on

Netflix’s first Brain on Fire trailer brings to life the best-selling memoir by Susannah Cahalan, a writer for The New York Post who contracted a mysterious illness that confounded medical experts. Chloë Grace Moretz tells her story as the 24-year-old in the film directed by Gerard Barrett.

Cahalan’s book is framed around her own investigation. Her condition caused her to lose her memories, so she had to revisit her own medical files, watch the footage of herself flailing in her hospital bed, and interview the people in her own life. The trailer, however, has more of a linear approach that begins with Susannah leading a normal life until her illness makes her a prisoner of her own body.

Carrie-Ann Moss (Jessica Jones), Thomas Mann (Kong: Skull Island), and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) populate the cast.

Brain on Fire initially premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, but it’s now getting a release via Netflix on June 22.

Watch the trailer above.
