In many ways, Golden and Silver are typical young girls. They're sisters who love each other, they're interested in music and boys, and they only eat people occasionally. They also happen to be mermaids.
After convincing the members of a small band to help them come ashore, the girls start performing with the band at a Warsaw nightclub. They consider heading to America, but their plans slowly derail when Silver finds herself falling in love with the bass player. This happens to coincide with a sharp increase in Golden's bloodlust, which becomes harder and harder to keep secret. But it may be Silver's choices that have set them on a destructive path.
This debut feature from director Agnieszka Smoczyńska is distinctly European, with plenty of glitter and glitz set to a thumping bass line.
It's weird and wild and lyrical, a bold and singular vision that plays like a modern fairytale by way of ’90s MTV. Sure to mesmerize and delight, The Lure is a strikingly sincere Polish mermaid musical unlike anything you've ever seen before.
