It's nearly impossible to figure out the plot of The Wanting Mare solely from watching the trailer but one thing is certain: this movie looks spectacular.

Nicholas Ashe Bateman's feature film debut first appeared on the festival circuit last year to much acclaim but it disappeared almost as soon as it appeared but it's now making a comeback as one of the first must-see titles of the new year.

Starring a roster of mostly TV and indie-film actors, The Wanting Mare is a sprawling fantasy tale that follows a young woman named Moira. She's important to this universe but having gown up alone after her mother's death in childbirth, she sets off to forge her own life and her choices have repercussions on the entire world for years to come.

The Wanting Mare is a technical marvel five years in the making by Bateman whose career expertise working in the visual effects industry, most recently on David Lowery's much anticipated The Green Knight, is clearly on display in every shot of this gorgeously lyrical trailer.

The Wanting Mare opens in theatres and will be available on-demand on February 5.

This does look intriguing, and I'm looking forward to checking it out.

Also, that's a terrific poster. And title!
