DEHAAN or What the Butler Didn’t See
Being deviant ain’t what it used to be.

In 1960, DeHaan’s public pose is becoming increasingly untenable. His gossip column is an irrelevant relic as mores change. His fears manifest as a lurking stranger who reappears in a variety of guises. DeHaan reluctantly agrees to portray the sacrificial offering in a ghoulish drama. He fixates on Kennedy for president while attempting to manipulate a sought-after actress and an oddball actor. Dark forces unleash upon DeHaan’s fading posture.
