Leanne Everitt: STEVE (Netflix)

LEANNE EVERITT will be playing HELEN in new NETFLIX film STEVE staring Cillian Murphy and Jay Lycurgo.

Netflix’s Steve is an adaptation of Max Porter’s 2023 novel Shy. Here’s the abbreviated book synopsis as seen in Goodreads:

This is the story of a few strange hours in the life of a troubled teenage boy. He is wandering into the night listening to the voices in his head: his teachers, his parents, the people he has hurt and the people who are trying to love him. He is escaping Last Chance, a home for “very disturbed young men,” and walking into the haunted space between his night terrors, his past, and the heavy question of his future. That being said, Steve won’t be a direct adaptation of the book but rather a reimagining. The Netflix movie will be set from the headteacher’s perspective and will explore a pivotal 24 hours of his life, during which he is trying to keep the students in line while also struggling with his own spiraling mental health.
