Featuring masterful performances from the likes of Academy Award winner Olivia Colman (The Favorite), Walter Goggins, Kaitlyn Dever, Alice Englert, and Jim Gaffigan, filmmaking duo Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage tell a story of communal tensions and betrayal in Them That Follow. Set in an isolated village in Appalachia, the film follows the inner workings of a snake-handling church whose congregation are as devout as they are unforgiving. Goggins is Pastor Lemuel, whose daughter Mara (Englet) is arranged to be married to a young follower of the church. As the wedding day approaches, Mara races to keep a scandalous secret from leaking to the rest of the congregation, a truth that may very well result in the destruction of the church's foundation, and herself, should it ever get out.

"[T]he filmmakers let the story slither at its own rhythm, so that the magnitude of the psychological control can be fully exposed." - The Wrap
