March 27 (UPI) -- Searchlight Pictures is giving a glimpse of the new film Kinds of Kindness.

The studio shared a teaser trailer for the movie Wednesday featuring Emma Stone and Willem Dafoe.

Kinds of Kindness is an anthology film directed and co-written by Yorgos Lanthimos. The project reunites Lanthimos with Stone and Dafoe, who starred in his Oscar-winning film Poor Things.

Jesse Plemons, Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie and Hunter Schaefer also star.

Kinds of Kindness is "a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader," an official synopsis reads.
