Frances Welty (McCarthy) is a writer who visits a remote spa in town with a back problem, a broken heart, and an extremely painful cut on her finger. She is soon intrigued by the other retreats – most don’t seem to really need a spa. But the one that makes her the most curious is director Masha (Kidman). Does she have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was looking for? Should Frances put her doubts aside and indulge in all that the spa has to offer? Or is it better to flee while there is time?
Luke Evans and Samara Weaving are also on the bill. Melvin Gregg, Grace Van Patten and Tiffany Boone round out the team.
The original novel was published in 2018 and spent 13 weeks at the top of the New York Times bestseller list.
