According to Deadline: ‘Foe is set in a near future when corporate power and environmental decay are ravaging the planet. Junior (Mescal) and Hen (Ronan) are a young couple married seven years and living a solitary life on their isolated farm.
‘One night, a stranger named Terrance (Pierre) knocks on their door, bringing news that throws their lives into turmoil: Junior has been randomly selected to travel to a large, experimental space station orbiting Earth.
‘The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Hen won’t have a chance to miss him, because she won’t be left alone — not even for a moment. Hen will have familiar company that pushes her to make a life-changing decision.’
It comes just days after a fan spotted Pascal walking around Melbourne’s trendy suburb of Fitzroy.
‘Paul mescal is roaming the streets of Fitzroy this is not a drill,’ she excitedly captioned a selfie alongside the star before sharing a video to her Instagram.
